Dean Marsh Takes Job 
With Special Enthusiasm 

The summer of 1966 seemed to be "turnover time" in the faculty 
and administration. One of the new additions to the administrative- 
staff is Professor Thad Marsh, the new Dean of the College. From student 
reactions and the filtered impressions of the faculty to his past visits, 
Dean Marsh is a very welcome addition to the campus. The enthusiasm 
and hopes of the college community seem to be reflected in the special 
kind of enthusiasm with which the Dean regards the position. 

It's a most exciting prospect," 
n Marsh said. "The kind of 
challenge that exists at Centenary 
happens to lie in an area which is 
of primary interest to me — the job 
of taking a faculty which is already 
top-flight and building it into an 
even better one." 

Prof. Marsh was the past dean 
of the College of Muhlenberg, a 
renown liberal arts college in Al- 
lentown. Pa., and prior to that he 
assistant to the president at 
Rice University. As these positions 
indicate, although Prof. Marsh is 
an alumnus of a large univi 
and he has served as administrative 
officer at large universities, his 
heart has been, and still is, with 
the small liberal arts colleges. 

"I am aware." said Dean Marsh. 
"that there has been a great deal 
of fainr-heartedness in recent times 
concerning the future of the small, 
independent college, but it is my 
impression that this has already 
begun to subside as the defenders 
of liberal arts education took up 
the challenge. 

Fat from having outlived its use- 
fulness, liberal arts — and I emphat- 
icallj include the sciences — are the 
verv heart of the whole educational 
enterprise, and are absolutely nec- 
essary to education for leadership. 
1 i"nsider that education ha-; a 
primarily moral aim — to inculcate 
« isdom as well as knowledge — and 
the small liberal arts college can 
do this far better than the mass- 
production uu.niver.Mty. 

I feel about the liberal arts col- 
lege as Voltaire felt about God — 
th.u if it didn't exist, it would be 
necessary to invent it." 

He was a Sullivan Scholar at the 
University of Kansas, a member of 
Phi Beta Kappa and was a Rhodes 
Scholar at Oxford, where he studied 


on two different occasions. During 
both of Prof. Marsh's sojourns at 
Oxford his research field was the 
intellectual and literary history of 
16th and early 17th Century Eng- 
land, with much of his documenta- 
tion in the travel literature of the 
day — especially that dealing with 
travel in the New World, and its 
impact on Old World thought. 

These days he finds his thoughts 
occupied more and more with the 
philosophy of higher education, 
and most of his recent writing and 
speechmaking has been in this vein. 
He also speaks and writes fluently 
concerning contemporary theology, 
another special area of interest. 

Dean Marsh is a member of the 
Rhodes Scholarship selection com- 
mittee and as associate member of 
the advisory council of the Dan- 
forth Foundation. He is also a fel- 
low of the Royal Geographical 
Society and a member of the mod- 
ern language Assn. of America, the 
American Assn. of University Pro- 
fessors and the Association of 
American Rhodes Scholars 

Total Enrollment Nearing 1500 As 
Centenary Begins Its 141st Year 

A record number of the '66 High School graduating class entered Centenary this fall along v/ith a sizeable 
increase in the number of returning students to boost the total enrollment near the 1500 mark. Along with 
the inrlux or students came a rash of headaches and hopes. 

President Wilkes announced 
September 13 that as of that date 
approximately 1500 students were 
registered for the Fall semseter. 
He pointed out these were nebu- 
lous figures and that Registration 
does not close until September 24. 

The figures broke down as fol- 
lows: approximately 1,125 full- 
time students of which over 400 
are freshmen, over 300 night 
school students and the balance in 
special students. 

There are several interesting 
and encouraging facts about the 
growth of the college when these 
and last year's figures are com- 
pared. Last year there were only 
976 full-time students. Another 
comparison shows that the num- 
ber of students who returned to 
Centenary increased by 25-^0', 
This year there were 625 as op- 
posed to 450 last year. 

These enrollment figures follow 

Dean Announces 
New Orientation 


Dean Forrest has recently an- 
nounced a new program initiated 
to introduce all new Centenary 
students to the college. All incom- 
ing freshmen and transfers are re- 
quired to attend the informative 
series of lectures. The programs 
will be held each Tuesday at 10:30 
beginning September 20th and 
concluding November First. The 
first two sessions, to be held in 
assigned classrooms, will be devot- 
ed to testing the new students in 
the fields of interest and personal- 
ity. These national standardized 
tests will be conducted by Dr. 
Touchstone, member of the psy- 
chology deparrment. 

The next five sessions will be 
held in the Brown Memorial Cha- 
pel featuring the top administra- 
tors of the college speaking on 
various phases of college services 
and activities. The first of these 
programs will concern itself with 
the history and purpose of the 
college in an address by President 
Wilkes. This program will be fol- 
lowed by a series of programs on 
the business policies and services 
of rhe college by Dean Forrest. Mr 
Austin, business manager of the 
college and Dean Marsh, new Dean 
of the College. Another address 
will be given on the expectations 
of the future by Mr. Delaney. 
head of the Centenary advance- 
ment program. This newlv initiat- 
ed series of programs should pro- 
vide the answers to many of the 
questions faci.ig the new students 
of the college, concluded Dean 

closely the plan of increase of full 
time students as laid out in the 10 
year plan of rhe college. This plan 
calls for a full-time enrollment of 
1500 by 1975. 

When asked about the entoll- 
ment figure President Wilkes 
pointed out that more interesting 
than the increase in numbers is 
the fact that the student body 
itself has changed. He said that 
in 1963 only 272 students lived on 
campus while this year over 575 
will be on campus. He pointed out 
this change has had profound ef- 
fects on the college. Whereas in 
campus life was nil, this 
year interest is already growing 
about the activity series and other 

One of the headaches caused by 
this influx of dorm students has 
been lack of space. Although most 
of the problems have been straight- 
ened out in the boys' dorms many 
rooms in the girls' dorms still have 
three girls. There had been dis- 
cussion among the administration 
of plans to increase dormitory space- 
however. Dr. Wilkes stated that rhe 
financial picture did not look very 
encouraging for a radical increase 
in the near future. 

One of the problems of the past 
has been students who make dorm 
reservations and then dropped 
them too late for a student wishing 
space to be accepted. In order to 
decrease the number of persons 
making room reservations and then 
dropping them, the room deposit 
will rise to $100.00 next fall. All 
students in school this spring and 
who will continue in the fall of 
'67 must pay their additional S50.00 
by March 15. 1967. 

Perhaps the most obvious in- 
dication of the "space squeeze" to 
campus students is the Cafeteria. 

Although the Cafeteria staff is 
working to try to minimize the 
problem the fact remains that the 
facilities are entirely inadequate. 
Ar the present the Cafeteria is 
feeding twice as many as it was 
built for. Pres. Wilkes stated that 
Cafeteria plans are hinging on 
Dorm plans which, as stated above, 
are bogged down. 

Dormitory Space and the Cafe- 
teria are not the only things that 
are beginning to show the space 
squeeze, the classroom situation is 
beginning to show the strain Af- 
ter discussing with Mr. Austin, the 
Comptroller of the College, the 
situation on campus he revealed 
that an additional seven classrooms 
and twelve offices were being 
presently constructed in the base- 
ment of the library. 

The planned completion date 
for the new home of the History 
Department is around Nov. 1. 

Another aspect of the crowded 
conditions was the start, at the re- 
quest of the Student Senate, of the 
parking regulation system on 
campus. Although there were manv 
complications initially, the plan 
seems to finally be taking effect. 

All of these are problems of a 
growing school and although there 
are inconveniences there is the con- 
solation that the college is attract- 
ing more students which in turn 
means that a degree from Centen- 
ary is in more demand. 


Beginning with this issue, the 
lomerate will be featutmg

President of Centenary College 


Editor, Conglomerate: 

I am returning to Centenary af- 
ter an absence of one semester, ex- 
pecting to vent part of my energies 
in that never-ending movement to- 
ward reform. I find a great deal 
of change, to say the least. I find 
an administration which is to me 
essentially a question mark, and 
faculty and student body in which 
many of the old faces — ones 
which really counted in student 
government — are gone. 

But perhaps even more surpris- 
ing — or rather deflecting — I 
find a great deal that has not 
changed. And that "great deal" 
is the problem confronting such 
work as the Ad Hoc committee is 
now engaged in. These problems 
have been sounded out in the Con- 
glomerate for the past two years at 
least, and we are all tired of hear- 
ing about them. They certainly 
don't need another repetition here. 

Perhaps a good part of these 
problems will be solved with the 
coming President's Conference. It 
was last year, at least so far as 
communication between the actual 
participants in student government 
and the administration goes. But 
there is a vast majority of the stu- 
dent body which for valid reason 
does not, and cannot participate. 
Communication between these stu- 
dents and their representatives in 
student government, and theit pol- 
icy-makers in the administration is 
almost nil. 

This must be remedied if the 
coming constitutional reforms are 
to be understood and intelligently 
voted on. Two opportunities for 
such an improvement of commun- 
ications come to mind immediate- 
ly. Obviously there is thv. Con- 
glomerate, which can, and should, 
do more informing and less de- 
manding that it has done under 
previous editors, myself included. 
It cannot, of course, guarantee any 
improvements, but it can certainly 
offer the opportunity for a great 

There is also the President's 
Conference, which, in spite of the 
publicity it received last year, was 
actually poorly covered. Students 
there were much too involved in 
the discussions to hope to make 
any objective report to the student 
body about what was and was not 
accomplished. I would therefore 
like to suggest that some steps be 
taken by those planning the con- 
ference for the recording and print- 
ing of the discussions held there. 
A tape recording of the confer- 
ence, or some other method by 
which the student body could see 
not only what was discussed, but 
also which of rheir representatives 
actually contributed to the con- 
ice, this would of course be 
ideal: would aid tremendously in 
improving' the duality of student 
government. But at the very least 
some printed record of rhe con- 
ferenre — and others like it — 
should be made available to the 
student body. 

The reforms are going to be 
rmde. and student eovernmenr will 
continue to exist. But without an 
informed student body, and for 
rh" matter an informed faculrv 
and administration, the existence of 
bo-h will be rarher noinr'ess.

One Bag Of Beans 

In a far off land there are two stories told about a young man, a clerk, 
a store, and some beans. 

In the first story there was a young man who wanted to get rich, 
but he was told that in his society he had to grow beans if he waniou 
to be a success. He went to the store to buy some beans. It was a nice, 
flashy-looking store, something like a super market, (it aimed for vol- 
ume). The clerk was very friendly, and the young man didn't have to pay 
much for the bag of beans. He spent a little time in the store looking 
around, then ran home very happy. He put the bag in a glass case and 
put it on a shelf and then sat back and waited for success, and sat, and 
sat, and sat, and sat. He didn't get rich. He didn't succeed, and he 
blamed it on the store. The store wasn't worried, it still sold a lot of 
beans. The clerk didn't feel bad, he had been vety nice. The boy would 
have been better off if he hadn't gone to the store. 

The second story is about another young man in the same far-off 
land. He too wanted success and he too went to a store, but this store 
was different. It was not as gaudy nor flashy, not as many pretty cartons 
or cans, but it was nice. He asked the clerk if he could buy a bag of 
beans. In a gruff voice the clerk said NO! "I will LEASE you a bag of 
beans." "W|hat terms?" asked the young man. "That you work and 
cultivate these beans so that when you leave to go home the bag of 
beans I lease to the next young man will be better." "OK," said the 
young man, "but I don't know how to grow beans.' "I'll help you," 
said the clerk. So they worked side by side, and grew the beans, the 
clerk teaching the young man to cultivate, dig, water and fertilize the 
beans, the young man working, sweating, getting his hands ditty. The 
beans grew, and grew, and grew, and grew. It was dark before the young 
man left but he was proud-happy. He had a wheelbarrow of large beans he 
knew he would have no trouble selling, and he had left the clerk the 
better bag of beans to lease again. The clerk? He was tired. It had not 

been easy. Now, after watching the man grow the beans, he felt well, 

he felt something only another clerk would understand. 

Centenary — Which are you? 

Faculty — Which are you? 

Students — Which are you? 


Moral: You can find a Day Nursery less expensive than $2,000 a year. 

College isn't a key club. College isn't the 13th grade in the Public 
School System. College is an institution of higher learning. Education 
is what it exists for; and if that isn't the reason you are entering or 
returning to Centenary, then save yourself the trouble of packing your 
clothes. College may be the door to success, but it isn't standing open 
Just being in the vicinity of it isn't going to do you any more good than 
joinmg the Marines. The door must be pushed, shoved, heaved open. 

This editorial is a plea! Too many people stunned by the glamour 
ot the phrase "campus life," the prospect of life away from the parents 
and the thrill of using college stationery come to Centenary— AND GO!

Dear Centenary Students: 

A hearty welcome — to those who are new students and to those who 
are returning. I invite the returning students to help us welcome the 
new ones. You will find our faculty to be friendly, and eager to help 
you. Success in college requires hard work and diligent study. I 
hope that together we can enjoy Centenary as "an academic community 
where excellence is encouraged and individuality is respected." 

To achieve this purpose involves us all: students, faculty, and adminis- 
tration. To that end we are planning another "Conference on Student 
Life" for faculty and student leaders. This give-and-take discussion is 
one of the ways in which we try to learn of the student's needs and 
interests, in order that we may help to make his college experience 
meaningful and worthwhile. We are interestd in you as a person. 

May this year be your best; with your cooperation I know it will be 
one of the best years in Centenary's long history. Again, welcome. 
I look forward to seeing you soon. 

Sincerely yours, 

Jack S. Wilkes 


Dear Centenary Students, 

Wow, at last I get the time to 
send a few lines. First, I want to 
thank you all for your assistance 
and help during my stay at Cen- 
tenary College, and for the oppor- 
tunity that Dr. Pledger and others 
provided me to study in Shreve- 

I learned a lot during my time 
there, both in school and outside 
school,and now, after I have come 
home, I realize even more how 
much it meant for me. After school 
was over, I traveled through the 
U.S. for a month and a helf and 
during that trip I got to see and 
experience many things. 

When I now have had time to 
think things over at my home and 
in a bit different and perhaps 
more quite surrounding, I have 
got a more clear view of the Unit- 
ed States, and been able to form 
mv opinions about your countrv 
better than I was ever able or do 
going to spell it all out here, but 
when I was over there. I am not 
to sav it briefly: in some cases 
Icertainly enw the Americans, but 
I think that I pity them in even 
more aspects. There are too manv 
things which the average Ameri- 
can never realizes concerning all 
aspects of humanity and society. 
It concerns both political, civic 
and purely human affairs. Manv 
Americans do live in a very pleas- 
ant life. However, what they need 
to do is to check whether they 
are surrounded by stable and strong 
walls, or if they live in glass 
houses, as many do. This glass is 
by now getting so thin that it 
surprises me that they have not 
yet looked through it. 

Enough of that! I also want 
you to know that I personally 
thoroughly enjoyed my stay in 
the U.S. I had a very nice time 
and I do hope to be able to get 
back some day. 

Sincerely yours, 

Leif Talskog 


The public outcry against the Supreme Court's recent attempt to 
clarify obscenity is now reaching a crescendo. And no one is more 
outraged than Mr. Homer T. Pettibone, one of the most widely read 
writers of our times. (Under various noms de plume.) 

"Confusing! Obfuscating! Unworkable!" cried Mr. Pettibone, a 
look of pain on his finely chiseled features. "The chaotic opinions of 
these senile old men have imposed an unbearable burden on us crafts- 

"It couldn't be as bad as all that,' I said. 

"I am seriously considering laying aside my pen forever," he said, 
adjusting his paisley Ascot with his long, tapered fingers. "For it has 
become all but impossible for a modern author, even one of my caliber, 
to write smut." 

"Good Heavens!" I coudn't help but exclaim. 

"Take my latest work, 'Playthings of Lust'," said Mr. Pettibone, 
staring moodily into his brandy snifter. "The reviews were marvelous. 
'Hard core pornography,' 'Absolutely vile,' 'Pure slime.' Those are only 
some of the phrases lavished on it. And not one found an iota of litreary 

That's important?" 

"Crucial. It must be totally without literary merit to qualify as smut. 
Never had I written more poorly. And then this one idiotic critic from 
the Baptist Seminary Bulletin had to call it, 'A perfect example of the 
filth contaminating our society." 

"What's wrong with that?" 

"Redeeming social importance," said Mr. Pettibone gloomily. "You 
see, the Court lifted the ban on 'Fanny Hill' solely because it was a per- 
fect example of 18th Century pornography. And here, all unknowingly, 
I'd written a perfect modern example of pornography. How can society 
ban smut if it has no examples of what smut is? Thus my socially im- 
portant work was no longer smut." 

"Most unfair. Was there nothing you could do?" 

"I tried. I went to my publisher, Dirty, Inc.,' and demanded a 
hard-hitting titilating advertising campaign. This would redeem it 
under Justice Brennan's opinion that a work promoted by titilating ad- 
vertisements is obviously smut." 


"Yes. The blurb on the jacket said: 'The dominat theme of this 
material taken as a whole will appeal to your prurient interest!' But 
was anybody titilated? No. In the end, not a single book dealer would 
sell it under the counter. It was a complete flop." 

"A tragedy," I said. "And now, thanks to the Supreme Court, you 
have renounced pornography and I assume you will turn to writing 
good, clean, socially acceptable novels?" 

Mr. Pettibone looked aghast. "Good gracious," he said. "I just 
explained how difficult it is to guess what the Supreme Court thinks 
smut is. I couldn't even begin to guess what they think it isn't."

partment, will present six productions in the 1966-67 season. The depart- 
ment staff, consisting of Mr. Orlin Corey, the head of the department, 
and his wife, Irene, who designs the sets and costumes for all playhouse 
production, Miss Ruth Alexander, who directs peech and debate activi- 
ties, and Mr. Phillip Anderson, the new technical director, will be in 
charge of all the playhouse activities. 

The first production scheduled when Mr. Corey directs "The 

is a touring company of the famous 
Noh threatre of Kyoto, Japan, 
which is traveling the United States 
for the first time in its history. 
This performance will take place 
on the evening of October 3, and 
will run for one night only. The 
much anticipated Reader's Theatre, 
directed by Miss Alexander, will 
be a reading of the Broadway ver- 
sion of The World of Carl Sand 
burg." This will run three nights, 
from Thursday, October 20 through 
Saturday, October 22. 

On his return to the States, Mr. 
Corey will direct the world pre- 
miere production of "Widow's 
Walk," a dtama by the Texas play- 
wright, Ramsey Yelvington. The 
dates for the presentation are De- 
cember 2, 3, and 8, 10. Following 
this on February 16-18 and 23-25. 
Mr. Anderson will direct Eugene 
O'Neill's "The Great God Brown." 

The week of March 27 through 
April 1 will see the first Children's 
Theatre production in several years. 

137 Kings Highway Phone 868-3401 


'We Always Vacuum Your Car" 

Great Cross Country Race,' a 
modern revival of the tortoise and 
the hare fable. Mrs. Corey was 
commissioned to create the costume 
and makeup designs for the play 
several months ago. The play will 
also be an activity of note since 
the Children's Theatre Conference 
will be holding its convention in 
Shreveport at the time. 

The final production of the 
season, a staging of Dylan Thomas' 
"Under Milkwood," will be direct- 
ed by Mr. Corey and will probably 
be the most lavish show of the 
season. The series of vignettes of 
the Welsh poet's hometown will 
be shown May 4-6 and May 11-13. 

In addition to the dramatic ac- 
tivities at the Matjorie Lyons, the 
Centenary Invitational Forensics 
tournament will take place on the 
weekend of March 3 and 4. Under 
the direction of Miss Alexander, 
the event will feature some of the 
top high school speech and deba-e 
talent of the South and Southwest. 

The Centenary College speech 
and drama department is noted for 
producing only the finest in thea- 
tre, but it is of no value unless we, 
the students take the fullest advant- 
age of it. Support your college 
theatre; attend as many of the 
productions as you can.

Working under the auspices of the Student Senate, the entertain- 
ment committee announced the signing of the contract for a concert by 
the world famous Swingle Singers. The site of the two hour concert will 
be the new Shreveport Civic Theater on the evening of November 19- 
This concert will be presented as part of the Senate's Activity Fee pro- 
gram and all students will be admitted free. 

Since their first recording, Romantic composers, and make it 

"Bach's Greatest Hits," the fantas- 
tically popular seven French singers 
and their American leader, Ward 
Swingle, have virtually been in 
orbit on the concert stage. 

And what do the Swingle Sing- 
ers do? Mr. Swingle and his ex- 
traordinary singers take the music 
of Bach, and other Baroque and 

swing. The most remarkable fea- 
ture, perhaps, is that the notes are 
left exactly as the composer wrote 
them — there are no deletions, 
changes, or additions. The only ad- 
justment necessary is the use of 
bass and drums to set the fugues, 
preludes, and other compositions 
in 4 '4 time and, to repeat, make 
it swing.

Your congenial and informed upperclassmen have eagerly, but at 
great risk, prepared a survival kit composed of little ditties which we 
guarantee will not be offered in those ve;y infrequent sessions of orienta- 

Dittie No. 1: Speaking of orientation, good Freshman Follies on 
this campus come few and far between. From all indications this class 
could produce a real winner. "Proof"??? 

Dittie No. 2: Your yearbook is called the Yoncopin. A yoncopin 
is a water lily. This flower disappeared with the "sleepy silver bayou." 
Conclusion: Both were obsolete. Of course, nothing else at Centenary 
is outdated. 

Dittie No. 3: Speaking of Registration, the Physics Department 
wishes to announce that they are not in competition with he English 
Department for the initation of Computerized Departmental Program- 
ming. We are lucky that Mr. Staff was hired. We understand that he 
is IBM's busiest representative. 

Dittie No. 4: Speaking of staff, here is a nursery rhyme which 
you could use to depress any upperclassman with any memory at all: 
Hickory Dickory Dock 
The P.R. Man ran up the clock — 
The clock struck one, 

down he run. 
Hickory Dickory Docked. 
Dittie No. 5: Speaking of Mother Goose, you have undoubtedly 
been advised to write home often. We submit to you a vocabulary de- 
signed to confuse the most discerning parents. 

a. My roommate has three pair of belitroope underwear. I'm 
afraid she is nouveau-ricity. 

b. I had a mediokra time at the ball park last night. My date was 
just plain burgoisee. 

c. Mrs. Hazzard tapped a keg of our favorite Kool-Aid today — 
statutorri grape. 

Dittie No. 6: Speaking of statutorri grape, congratulations to the 
zoo animals who performed with Wilson Pickett after 11. 

Dittie No. Last: The cafeteria line seems to be growing every day. 
Brace yourselves for long waits. Expansion of the facilities is not on the 
agenda. ("This is a very familiar story; I know these people. I don't 
like familiar stories.") 

Mandrake Speaks 

Dear Incoming Freshman: 

Wecome to Centenary College, home of the BMOK ( Big Mandrakes 
on Klampus) Fraternity. As you know, due to our small size and rela- 
tive "youngness," we were not able to participate in closed rush. How- 
ever, undaunted, we shall dive ahead into open rush, keeping up with 
the pace of the other four fraternities (DA, KA, KE, TKE) as we leap 
to a new height in college fraternal membership. 

You are cordially invited to stop by our new BMOK Fraternity 

House, presently called "Cline Dormitory," to join us Saturday night 

as we watch Get Smart. Afterwards, you are welcome to stop 

by our recreation room, presently called "The Carousel," for 

refreshments. If you don't have a date, many of of members 

have cute sister and mothers. 

Remember, the fraternity system is the backbone of America and 


modern BIG-LITTLE BROTHER system helps to orient you to the 

fraternity system, apply you to your studies, and supply you with a 

ready drinking partner. 

Next week we will be inviting soroity members over for tea & 
crumpets, which will be a tremendous opportunity for all of our young 
women with whom we share common interests, such as booze. 

When we meet you Saturday night we will judge you by our stand- 
ards of excellence, and later vote to determine our unofficial opinion of 
your personality, heritage, and financial background. We are particularly 
interested if you are a potential candidate for any school office During 
a campaign, all the FRATERNAL BROTHERS will work unceasingly 
to help you get elected. After the campaign, all the FRATERNAL 
BROTHERS will work unceasingly to influence and control your new 
All members of BMOK are looking forward to meeting you.

Choir Begins 
Active Season 

One of the most outstanding exponents of Centenary College is its 
famous choir, the globe-trotting choristers whom the Honorable Clyde 
Fant, Mayor of Shreveport, has labeled, "Shreveport's Singing Ambassa- 
dors." "The Choir," as it is known on campus, consists of forty-nine 
regularly enrolled students of Centenary College who by no means limit 
their activities to the choir alone. Active in all phases of campus life, 
from professional fraternities to student government affairs, the choir 
members strive to upohld the group's reputation of being well-rounded 
citizens of Centenary. The choir's reputation and traditions stem from 
a history of twenty-five years of outstanding organizations under the 
able direction of Dr. A. C. "Cheesy" Voran. 
The Choir began in 1941 as of show business. 

P age 7 

small group of interested singers 
whom Cheesy had brought together 
with the idea of presenting choral 
concerts on campus and in the 
Shreveport area. The popularity of 
the group eventually led them to 
engagements ranging from New 
York City to the faraway shores 
of Okinawa. The choir has par- 
ticipated in the pageantry of nine 
conventions of the Lions Club In- 
ternational. These trips alone have 
taken the singres from Miami to 
Chicago, from New York to San 
Francisco. In the summer of 1961, 
the choir was the featured choral 
group for the stage show at the 
famed Radio City Music Hall. 
While fulfilling the contract in 
the famed palace of show business, 
the signers presented four shows 
a day, each time to an audience of 
over six thousand people. Operating 
on a swing-shift basis, the singers 
each had one week off in which to 
see the sights of the fabulous met- 
ropolis. Perhaps the greatest com- 
pliment given the group during 
the run was the respect and ad- 
miration accorded them bv stage 
managers and orchestra members 
of the Music Hall, the real critics

The choir also made two notable 
trips to the Far East; in the spring 
of 1957 and again in the spring of 
1958, to sing for United States 
military installations in Korea. One 
of the most memorable moments 


of the second trip was the singing 
of the Easter service as the sun 
rose over the Pacific on Okinawa. 
While in Korea, the choir traveled 
by military air transport planes and 
the indefatigible work-horses of 
the armed services, Jeeps. Perform- 
ing in blistering hear and freezing 
rain, in airplane hangars and open- 
air theatres, the young singers 
earned the reputation of being 
some of the best troupers ever to 
tour the U.S. bases. 

Closer to home, the choir par- 
ticipates in a yearly tour of South 
Louisiana and Southwestern Texas 
in the period between the fall and 
spring semesters of college. The 
tour this year will begin on Janu- 
ary 20th approximately two hours 
after the last final examination of 
the fall semester. At that time, the 
choir will board its chartered bus 
to go to its lodge at Hodges Gar- 
dens for "R & R" the group's term 
for rest and relaxation. The tour 
will continue on its itenerary of 
Louisiana cities, closing on January 
30th. The singers will arrive back 
at Centenary just in time to begin 
the spring semester's work. 

One of the most spectacular 
events during the year for the choir 
is the annual "Rhapsody in I 
the debut concert of the year. This 
year's Rhapsody will be November 
15th and 16th in the Shreveport 
Civic Auditorium. The concert 
features the choir's repertoire along 
with solo numbers by ceicain mem- 
bers of the group. Also featured 
will be the choir's two excellent 
accompanists. Gayle Boucher, a 
junior from Springhill. Louisiana, 
and David Blodgett, also a junior, 
from Mt. Pleasant, Texas. Gayle 
and David have proved their out- 
standing abilities as both fine 
accompanists and fine pianists in 
countless performances with the

Hodges Gardens Was 
Scene of Work and 


In preparation for the busy year ahead, the choir members were at 
Hodges Gardens near Many, Louisiana for their annual training camp. 
During the ten days the group was rehearsing and planning for the many 
appearances they will make. The members were assisted this year by 
one of the world's leading authorities on English diction, Miss Madeline 
Marshall from the faculty of Julliard in New York. Miss Marshall, or 
"Mad" as she is affectionately known to the choir members, has limited 
her work with college group exclusively to the Centenary group. As 
she puts it, If I didn't think 

they were one of the best choral 
groups in the United States, I 
woudn't be here." This was 
"Mads" fourth visit to choir camp. 
In addition to working on the 
problem of diction in individual 
sessions each morning, Mad works 
with Cheesy and the singers during 
the actual musical rehearsal to study 
the particular problems of this 
years repertoire. Her expert advice, 
the product of many years of ex- 
perience of working with singers 
in both popular music and grand 
opera, is on display each time the 
choir performs in public. She savs, 
"I have yet to be disappointed with 
the results of our work here. I'm 
really proud of mv association 
with the Centenary Choir." 

Along with the work at choir 
camp goes an equal amount of fun. 
The choir members have full use 
of the spacious lodge built for their 
use by Mr. A. J. Hodges, the re- 
markable man whose imagination 
and love of natural beauty caused 
the creation and development of 
the famous "Garden in the Forest." 
The lodge is situated on a beauti- 
ful lake which, fortunately for 
everyone, is perfect for swimming 
and skiing. The recreation of the 
lake and the quiet beauty of the 
gardens themselves tend to make 
the training camp a memorable 
rime for all who participate in the 

The choir is also featured in 
ilar, commercially sponsored 
television programs on KTBS-TV, 
Channel 3, in Shreveport. South- 
western Electric Power Company 
is beginning its fifteenth year of 
sponsorship of the choir's monthly 
programs The programs, which are 
planned by a committee of choir 
members, generally require rhe 
memorization of eight additional 
numbers for each broadcast, thus 
adding still more to an already 
impressive repertoire. 

Working on the belief that good 
music is not the only requisite for 
an enjoyable program, rhe choir 
strives to present an appearance 
that is equal to its singing. The 
members are aided in this by the 

fabled S10.000 wardrobe. Unlike 
most college choral groups, the 
Centenary College Choir very rare- 
ly appears in robes. The choir ladies 
are presented with the choice of 
rose taffeta formals, blue chiffon 
gowns cut along Grecian lines, or 
white satin dresses featuring a 
watteau train and removable sheer 
sleeves. The gentlemen's wardrobes 
are chosen to compliment the ap- 
parel worn by rhe feminine mem- 
bers of the group, with a brown 
full dress outfit, stripped trousers 
and black morning coats, and sum-, 
mer tuxedoes being called into ser- 
vice. When a performance does 
call for robes, the choir dons 
emerald green vestments with whire 
satin collars. These are used mostly 
for the choir's frequent appearance^ 
in the chapel services at the col- 

As Cheesy says, "We are not 
trying to make a professional 
musician out of anyone; we just 
want to develop solid people — 
real human beings." Each choir 
member is impressed with the per- 
sonal responsibility he has of being 
a good representative of both the 
choir and the college. Though the 
schedule is busy and the work often 
ouite difficult, threats and pressure 
are never used to accomplish the 
end result. "We trv to love our 
oeople into doing their work," is a 
favorite expression used to des- 
cribe both the goal and the "modus 
operandi" of the Centenary College 
Choir. The results of this theory 
are clearly seen in the daily actions 
and the performance standards up- 
held by the members. 


In addition to the "old heads," 
people who have been in the choir 
previously, fifteen new faces were 
present at choir camp this year. 
Penny Arwood of Havelock, North 
Carolina, and Bill Stowe from To- 
peka, Kansas are traveling the 
greatest distance to join the ranks 
of the singers. New members from 
Texas are Cheryl MaPesh from 
Daengerfield, and Karen Smith, 
who hails from St. Augustine. The 
remaining are all Louisiana res- 
idents. They are Mary Frances 
Backstrom and Doug Koelemay, 
both of New Orleans; Scott Boat- 
rignt, from New Iberia; Suzette 
DeW'ese and Linda Garrett, resi- 
dents of Lafayette; Angie Hoff- 
pauir, Franklin; Carol Mittelstaedt,

Varsity Hopes Ride 
With New Players 

Once again the Centenaiy Gentlemen will be facing a very form- 
idable group of basketball foes. This season's schedule is highlighted by 
participation in two December tournaments. The Blue Bonnet Bowl is 
the first tournament where opposition will come from Rice, Houston, 
and Idaho State University. The second is our own Shreveport Holiday 
Classic where the Gents will host Morehead Ky. State, East Tennessee 
State, and Louisiana Tech.

New opponents on this year's 
schedule are Baylor and Cincin- 
nati on the road, and Abilene 
Christian College, Southern Illinois, 
and Hawaii at home. The schedule 
is evenly divided with 13 games 
at home and 13 games on the road. 

This is going to be a complete 
rebuilding year for Head Coach 
Orvis Sigler and Assistant Doug 
Moory. There will be only two 
lettermen returning. They are Dar- 
rell McGibany, 5-10, guard; and 
Andy Fullerton, 6-3, forward. Three 
other squadmen from last year are 
also returning. They are Dellis 
Germann, 6-1; Bob Lange, 6-1; 
Jim McAlear, 6-7. 

A great deal of help should come 
from last year's freshmen. Moving n -- _• .. 

up to the Varsity will be Larry At LlO rill Meeting 
Ward, 6-0, who broke Tom Ker- 

LaDue, Missouri; Bob Lang, 6-6, 
East Meadow, New York; Randy 
Prescotr, 6-8, Roslyn Heights, New 
York; Gregg Weis, 6-0, Hicksville,

brought before the dormitory coun- 
cil. This council will advise Dean 
Forrestas to proper punishment or 
time of social probation. Warrants 
are given for breakage of any of 
the rules in the manual. Examples 
of these are failing to make beds,

Student Life Will Be Discussed 
At 2nd President's Conference 

Centenary's Administration along with selected faculty and student leaders from all phases of campus 
life are meeting this entire weekend at Hodges Gardens, about 70 miles south of Shreveport. This will be 
the second of such meetings and is called the Second President's Conference on Student Life. The meeting 
is designed to give an opportunity for all facets of campus life to meet, acquaint themselves with one 
another, and most important, to discuss problems and hopes of the college from all three aspects. 

Once again the confetence will three day period. One is to be held As some of the activities indi-

Senate Budget Set At 
$25,000 This Semester 

At its last meeting on Tuesday night, the Student Senate studied 
the budget plan submitted by Treasurer Alton McKnight and accepted 
it tentatively. Covering an expenditure of approximately $25,000.00, 
the budget furnishes the money for all areas of student activity. 

The money from this semester's groups in the Senate budget 

Senate budget will come from three 
main sources: Student Activity Fee, 
Yoncopin Fee, and certain fees 
included in the tuition charge. 
These fees for the first semester 
totaled J24.3H.25. 

Money from this general sum 
will be budgeted to six main 
groups or committees. The enter- 
tainment committee will receive 
approximately $5,000.00 this se- 
mester to cover costs for "Big 
Name Entertainment" This com- 
mittee has already alloted about 
half of their money to contract 
"The Swingle Singers" who are 
rm November 19. Plans are 
now being formulated to contract 
,\ second performer. 

her committee to be bud- 
geted money will be the Forums 
Committee. For this semester's pro- 
gram it has been alloted 52.000.00. 
"This semester's Forums plans are 
fairly complete.

majority of the budget. The YON- 
COPIN will be budgeted with 
$6,800.00 this semester to be fol- 
lowed in the Snrinc with anorher 
$1,100.00. THE CONGLOMER- 
ATE will be working on a budget 
ol $3,875.00 this semester. Both of 
these budgets cover the printing 
costs, photographic cost, and sup-

the Playhouse are the last two 


The special meeting of all 
graduating Seniors will be 
held in Mickle Hall 114 on 
Tuesday, October 4, at 10:30 

begin on Friday afternoon when 
the group of 16 adults and 28 
students will leave from James 
Dorm at 2:30 p.m. Ten cats of 
4-5 person each will be used to 
transport the group to the Hodge's 
special camp within the Garden's 
limits. This camp, also used by 
the Choir during their stay at the 
gardens, has sleeping accommoda- 
rions, a conference room, a kitchen, 
and a wonderful view of the lake 
and gardens. All the major activ- 
ities, discussions, and meals will be 
held in the conference room of 
this camp. 

The schedule of events calls for 
five discussion periods, each two 
hours long, to be held within the 

S2.200.00 has been budgeted for 
the entire Otientation Program. 
The main expense for this year 
was the Wilson Pickett dance in 
the gym. The Playhouse will be 
presented approx. S 1,000.00 to re- 
fund their box office for the tickets 
that students are expected to obtain 
in seeing plays during the coming 

Treasurer McKnight reported 
that the Senate would have $3,- 
436.25 in the General Fund for 
this semestet to cover any inciden- 
tal expenses and expenditures 
over the assigned budgets. 

This is the first year that the 
Senate has handled an amount so 
large covering so many areas of 
campus life. Last year the Senate- 
budget amounted to Si, 200.00 the 
first semester. The Senate had no 
control of publications, and for- 
ums entettainment. and orienta- 
tion were all budgeted from this 
fund along with incidental ex- 
penses. The Playhouse Program is 
also new this year and is to some 
extent. like the entire activity fee. 
a result of last fall's President Con- 

Forums Set 
For Semester 

The Forums Committee of the 
Student Senate met Monday, Sep- 
tember 12, and discussed the plans 
for the year's Forums program. 
Those present wete Will Finnin, 
committee chairman, and members 
Janelle McCammon, Charles Wil- 
liams, Mike Deare, Taylor Caf- 
fery, Kay Koelemay and John Wal- 

The committee has adopted the 
theme "Perspectives in a Revolu- 
tionary Age" for the year. This 
framework will allow for speakers 
in a number of areas, all of which 
should reflect the turmoil and rap- 
id change of the mid-20th century. 

Already contracted for the first 
semester are Kay M. Baxter for 
October 20, Kahlid Babaa for Oc- 
tober 25, and Saul Alinski for 
November 8. Miss Baxter, a Dan- 
forth Visiting Lecturer, will speak 
on "Man Alone: the Soliloquy in 
Modern Dramaric Literature." Soc- 
iologist Saul Alinski of Chicago 
will speak on "The Social '"evolu- 
tion in Large Cities". Kahlid Ba- 
baa. who has been obtained through 
a Shreveport men's organizarion, 
will lecture on Arab-American re- 
lations. As a fourth speaker for the 
first semester, the commirtee has 
invited Roy Wilkins. Executive 
Secretary of the NAACP. Chances 
are excellent that the committee 
will be able to get Mr. Wilkins 
for an early December date. 

The Forums Committee has two 
Speakers presently planned for the 
spring semester. They are Dr. 
Henrv G. Bucbee. noted philo- 
sophct who will speak on existen- 
tialism, and Richatd Hofstadet, Pu- 
litzet Prize winning histotian. 

and one Sunday morning following 
a thirty minute worship period. 
Some of the topics that have beer, 
suggested as suitable for discussion 
this year are: 

Centenaty's History, Purpose and 

The Student's Role in College 

Student Profile and Admission 

Athletics at Centenary 
Student Publications 
Student Aid 
Student Services 

Results of Past President's Con- 
Forums Committee 
Student Culture and Academic 

Chapel, Lyceum, Assemblies, and 

Minority Student Groups 
Campus Mysteries 
Curriculum and Educational 

Campus Housekeeping 
This list is bv no means complete 
and subjects will ptobably be added 
and discussed once the confetence 

The schedule also allows ample 
time for the patticipants to get 
together and infotmally discuss 
certain problems or even more im- 
portant just to meet each other 
and thereby open a channel for 
future communication. Whether 
this be done while hiking over the 
gardens, feeding the ducks, fishing, 
or playing bridge, it is one of the 
most enjoyable parts of the con- 

cate, the atmosphere this weekend 
is to be one of informality. The 
dress is informal and the entite 
attitude is one of rested peace. The 
administtation seems to enjoy the 
vacation from the strain, as well 
as the faculty and students. 

In a letter sent to all partici- 
pants in the conference, President 
Wilkes suggested that everyone 
read the following brief articles: 
(September 18, 1966), p. 56. 
LOOK MAGAZINE (October 4. 
1966), p. 23. He also suggested 
the reading of the history and the 
purpose of the rol!e?p on pages 
8 and 9 of the college catalogue. 
Any student can benefit from these 

Following last years conference 
there was another short meeting 
held in town last spring. At this 
meeting the participants in the 
fall confetence met and discussed 
the progtess that had been made 
since their fall meeting. It is ex- 
pected that there will be a similar 
meeting to follow this spring. 


The gumnasium will be 
open on weekends during the 
following hours: 

Saturdays — 1:00-6:00 p.m. 

Sundays — 1:30-5:30 p.m. 

At these times intramural 
equipment will be available 
to check out and use.

vocation" where Grubsy Mars made a speech listing ? ideas? the mortals 
would like to see accomplished? This putt the Gods behind the 8 ball. 
(That is, the ' , that was their. Gcds are not "convocated." ) Thus the 
naive mortals planned to start the games with the back-rather upper-hand. 
Being in the NO, the Gods do not need strategy.

Elbie Jay Rides Again 

HOWDY, THERE, Folks. How y'all? Time for another tee-vee 
visit with the rootin', tootin' Jay Family, starring ol' Elbie Jay, who don't 
fret about what the polls say any more. Nor any less, either. 

As we join up with ol' Elbie today, he's a-pacin' back and forth 
in his study, trying to control himself. As his faithful aide, Wild Bill 
Moyers, enters, he looks up with a manful smile. Well, a kind of sickly, 
manful smile. 

Elibie: Well, Bill, ha-ha, what's one little old poll? So it, ha-ha, 
shows Bobby's now a mite more popular than me. Who, ha-ha, cares 
what the polls . . . (pausing, thunderstruck) WHERE DID YOU 

BILL (proudly): From the Avis Rent-a-Car people, sir. I 
thought they's boost staff morale. Would you care to wear one, sir? 

ELBIE (grimly): I don't need a button to make me try harder 
(attempting to recover his good humor) Besides, as the nation's best- 
dressed man . . . 

BILL: Excuse me, sir, second best. A new poll's been taken. 

ELBIE (glumly): He's first in that, too? 

BILL: But I'm sure you're a strong second, sir. Just as you 
are in the Most Winning Smile Poll, Sponsored by Dental Health 
Monthly; the Best Haircut, sponsored by the Barber Poll; and the 
Man I'd Most Like to Be Marooned With, sponsored by Radcliffe history 
majors. No, excuse me, Tab Hunter copped second in that one. 

ELBIE (gloomily): Second in war, second in peace, second 
in the hearts of my countrymen. Well, at least, I got my Iovin' family. 

BILL: Yes, sir. Here's a letter from your youngest daughter 
saying you'll always be first in her heart. Second, of course, to him. 

ELBIE (clutching his stomach) Him again? 

BILL (hastily): No sir, she means Pat. 

ELBIE: Oh. And I got my loyal aides, like you. 
( reverently ) : Yes, sir. I'll always worship you. Second to Him. 

ELBIE Him? You're fired! Oh, you mean Him. 

BILL: Yes, sir. In my book, John Lennon comes third. 

ELBIE: Well, we gor to do something about this Bobby. 

BILL: Shall I send him the poisoned apple? 

ELBIE: You been reading too many fairy tales. That's not 
the Christian way. Like I always tell you, Bill, you got to love your 
enemies. Get him on the phone. 

BILL (blanching): Yes, sir, but do you think he deserves your 
love? He isn't really a bad sort. 

ELBIE (humming happily to himself): Hush, now. Hello? 
Howdy, there, Bobby. Angry? 'Course not. Nothing I respect like a 
young man who gets ahead. Even by two percentage points. And to 
show there's no hard feeling, I want to put your popularity to good 
use. Now, how'd you like to be in charge of the Vietnam War? Oh. 
Well, there's other jobs for you. Take your pick: Mediator of Race 
Riots? Director of Inflation? Ambassador to Cuba? Yes, sir, Bobby 
I can't tell you how much I want you at my side, out here on the 
firin' line. 

WELL, TUNE in again, folks. And meantime, as you mosey 
down the long trail of life, remember what Elbie's ol' granddaddy used 
to say: 

"If'n a feller's doin' better than you, make him your friend. 
Unless you can unmake him."

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is an editorial from Illinois Wesleyan 
University concerning a form of academic schedule now being considered 
by the Senate for Centenary College. 

Short term sparks academics 

Independent study, concentrated effort, and personal 
satisfaction made the short term a substantial success. 
With trips off campus, visiting professors, and experi- 
mental methods, variety was added to the schedule of 
class meetings. 

While some students found themselves quite unoc- 
cupied, others were burdened with unwieldy, indigest- 
able assignments. It was encouraging to note, however, 
that most students were suddenly transformed into 
"students" — perhaps for the first time. 

The short term was no time for "spoon-feeding," for 
"bite-size" daily assignments from a syllabus. It was a 
time for feeling responsibilities as comparatively inde- 
pendent students. It was a time of adventure for both 
faculty members and class members. 

An extra-rigorous term paper and final exam sched- 
ule made the last two weeks of the long term torturous. 
With careful review and planning ahead, these prob- 
lems can be eliminated, and probably will be. 

The system, then, must be evaluated as well worth 
the trial. The benefits seem to outweigh the detriments 
by far. A long term with only three-fourths of a sem- 
ester load, a Christmas vacation with no assignments, 
a short term with opportunities for real scholarship — 
these are definite advantages for everyone. 

Future years will see smoother long terms and ever 
more diversified programs in the short terms. Wesleyan 
is functioning in a new dimension of effective liberal

New Deans Reveal 
Changes In Policy 

A scarce few weeks have 
Centenary officially took over the 
being seen from their work. 

The infirmary has been changed 
to Jackson Hall where a second 
language lab will be opened soon. 

The old infirmary building has 
been renovated and named East 
Colonial Hall and houses the bas- 
ketball players. 

Such changes are the result of 
the combined efforts of the Dean 
of the College T N. Marsh and 
Dean of Students Aubrey Forrest, 
both of whom had just settled down 
to office routine in the Adminis- 
tration Building when registration 

Dean Marsh, the academic dean. 
has announced plans for the open- 
ing of seven new classrooms and 
12 faculty offices in the basement 
le library on November 1. 
Seventeen new teachers have been 
hired for this semester, 14 of whom 
arc Fulltime. 

The 6T", blue-eyed dean lists his 
main concern as the faculty, the 
student body and curriculuum. He 
is intent on strengthening the ex- 
isting faculty with better salaries 
and benefits for further study. In 
the area of admissions, he says the 
college is geuing a competent ad- 
missions staff to make the admis- 
sions requirements more selective- 
He foresees that as the co 
grows, the proportion of resident 
students will rise as the admissi 
staff searches for students who live 
grcarcr distances from the college.

that in spite of excellent support 
we get, we are always going to be

is that we try to be the best pos-

on doing the best possible job of 
what it does well and that is being

liberal arts and sciences."

Have You Seen Fred Yet? 


Have you seen Fred yet? You couldn't have missed him, although 
he is new on campus. His face has that "Yes, I need some C-O-M-P-O-Z" 
look. As a matter of fact, his general appearance resembles a bassett 
hound the morning after. This will all clear up in time, however. At 
least it always has in the past. This poor boy is Fred Freshman. 

Many things have happened to is a three-inch sign, "I-Z." Fred 

Fred since he drove through the 
gates of Centenary. He is still wait- 
ing for something good to happen. 
Up to now his college life has been 
strictly confusion and frustration. 
Fred's first trial came when he 
tried to move into Cline Hall, only 
to find Mrs. Pollard didn't have 
his name on her list. Consequently, 
he is sleeping on a cot outside the 
men's room until further notice. 

Because of the location of his 
sleeping quarters, he overhears 
many upperclassmen conversations. 
One of the topics is the 'Sub.' 
What can this be? Fred wonders 
and wonders. It seems this is the 
place to go. 

Finally someone feels sorry for 
him in his loneliness and asks him 
to "go get some suds." Thinking 
the boy had said 'Sub,' Fred agrees 
to go. Now he can find out what it 
is. He is taken to a place some 
distance from the campus. The place 
is dark and noisy and doesn't look 
very safe, but when he sees a 
merry-go-round Fred decides it 
can't be too bad. Nevertheless, he 
does feel awfully uncomfortable; 
especially when he asks for a choc- 
olate milk and everyone laughs. 
The smoke-filled room makes his 
eyes water. Suddenly his stomach 
sinks! "Could this be one of those 
places Mother warned me about?" 
he asks himself. Fred hurries out 
the back way hoping no one will 
see him. 

He wanders back to the dorm to 
plan his schedule for registration 
the next morning. He gets there 
an hour early. He can almost see 
Mickle Hall from the end of his 
line. When his turn finally comes 
up he is told to please get in the 
correct line. "Can't you read?" 
screams the haggard professor. 
There, at the bottom of the door 

is an F. 

Around 10 p.m. Fred is through 
with registration. Really through. 
Not only has he missed Barman, 
Superman, and Rin Tin Tin, but 
the only classes left for him to 
take were Japanese Warercoloring, 
Chinese Rice-growing, Indian Bas- 
ket-weaving, and Homemaking in 
the Sudan. 

Things go fairly well in his first 
class, Japanese Wktercoloring, un- 
til the time for the assignment. He 
is instrucred to write to the Tokyo 
Chamber of Commerce for a bro- 
chure on the latest technological 
advances in coloring brushes. Fred 
finds his professor is totally un- 
sympathetic with an inefficient 
mail system that would need three 
weeks to deliver something. 

Events continue to happen in 
the same vein. He goes to an all- 
convocation chapel and waits and 
waits for it to start. Naturally he 
had assumed Chapel was held in 
the chapel. Out of the kindness 
of the janitor's heart, the young 
man learns it was held in the gym- 
nasium. He also learns there is no 
excuse for a chapel cut. 

In view of all this, one would 
think a group of wise, self-assured, 
and dignified upperclassmen would 
help Fred out. They remain heart- 
less, however. They are secure in 
their superiority. Perhaps they do 
have the right idea. For these up- 
perclassmen were Fred Freshmen 
once and only by being Fred Fresh- 
man have they become what they 
now are, but that would be another 

. . . they promote the same goals 
as the Dean of Students' offices 
does, including social life and ad- 
justment to college." 

As his office is closely connected 
t0 tne t studen ts- Dean Forrest said 
he is "intent on finding out what 
the students want and making a 
judgment on what they wanr ." 

When asked why he left Kansas 
Wesleyan University in Salina, 
Kans., after serving there as Dean 
of Students also, to come to Cen- 
he said the two most im- 
portant aims of life are to learn 
and to be of service. At Centrn-r, 
he feels both of these desires can 
be satisfied.

in 1333 and has descended to the 20th century relatively unchanged.

The name Noh, or No (pro- 
nounced no or know) means 
"field-music performance," and 
comes from the earlier title Denga- 
ku no No. The present form of 
Noh drama was also influenced by 
another ancient form called Saruga- 
lu or "scattered music." These two, 
Sarugaku and Dengaku, plus recita- 
tion and mime forms such as the 
Kowaka and the chanted dance, 
Kuse-mai, are the foundation for 
the Noh. 

In its simplest form, the Noh 
play consists of a dance preceded 
by a dialogue which explains the 
movement. The chanting and reci- 
tation are done by a chorus of ten 
or twelve men to the accompani- 
ment of a flute, rwo hand-drums, 
and occasionally a stick-drum. 

All of the movement is done by 
the lead dancer, called Shite, and 
his assistants, and bv the secondary 
performer, called Waki, who (as 
implied by his name.)

Senate Abolishes The 
Freshmen Cheerleaders 

The student senate held its regular meeting Tuesday night. 

President Dick Grisham introduced Joe Loupe as the new I.F.C 
representative to the senate. 

Early in the meeting a motion was made to abolish freshmen 
cheerleaders, after extensive deliberation the motion passed by a 
unanimous decision. The basic reason for the decision stemmed from 
the lack of attendance at freshmen games. It was pointed out that the 
near total absence of spsctatots was discouraging enough without having 
cheerleaders calling attention to the emptiness. 

Several designs for the activity card were presented, but none 
were decided on. The activity card that will be used for playhouse 
productions, entertainment, voting registration, and other activities, 
sponsored under the new activity fee, will be issued to all students in 
the near futuure. 

Freshmen senator elections will be held on October 12, 13, and 
14. The candidates will have an opportunity to speak at the I and O to

The senate would like to take this opportunity to invite any

ings which, for the time being, will be held at 6:30 on Tuesdays in the

Zaher To Organize Discussion 
Groups On Philosophical Questions 

A need for campus discussion groups on "philosophical questions" 
has come to the attnetion of Mr. George Zaher, Centenary faculty mem- 
ber. Mr. Zaher, who is teaching at Centenary under the Woodrow Wil- 
son Foundation's Teaching Internship Program, called attention to this 
need in a recent letter to the Conglomerate. 

In his letter, Mr. Zapher emphasiz- If God does not exist, should 

ed the philosophical nature of the 
discussions. He wrote, ". . . these 
discussions would have as their aim 
self-knowledge, rather than know- 
ledge of the objective universe. 
Thus any topic can be dealt with, 
in so far as that topic would en- 
able the student to gain a better 
understanding of himself, of his 
moral needs, and of his place in 
the world." 

The groups would be composed 
of about six students who would 
meet regularly to discuss a topic of 
their own choosing. The first meet- 
ing of each group will involve stu- 
dents only, and at this meeting the 
participants would decide when and 
where to meet, what topics would 
be discussed and for how long, 
and whether the group should re- 
main entirely student or involve 
faculty members also. Thus the pro- 
gram for each group would be 
strictly in the hands of the students. 

Any students who are interested 
in participating in one of these 
groups shuold complete the fol- 
lowing form and return it by Cam- 
pus Mail to George Zaher, Box 244, 
no later than Wednesday, October 12. 

Specify which topics you are in- 
terested in, in order of preference 
Write in topics that you think should 
be included: 

What does it mean to die? 

The pros and cons of 

organized religion

Can we determine a universal

Annual President's Conference Held: 
New Phases Of Campus Life Discussed 

The Second President's Conference on Student Life was held last week-end at Hodges Gardens, 70 
miles south of Shreveport. Centenary's administration and top faculty and student leaders met to discuss 
the problems facing the curriculum and management of the college. A series of five informal sessions 
were held, providing the opportunity for all facets of campus life to meet, acquaint themselves with one 
another, and discuss the problems and hopes of the college. During each two hour session, major sub- 
jects were discussed and evaluated. 

of a state school." Proposed plans 

were reported to amount to a cost 

of $20 million. 

The conference began with a brief 
history of the college by Dr. Lowrey, 
followed by the purpose of the col- 
lege by Dr. Morgan. President 
Wilkes, who presided over the three 
day conference, related the goals of 
the college to those present. He ex- 
pressed great hope in the future, 
stating that 'Centenary should be 
able to do more than state-supported 
institutions in the field of education 
because it isn't bound by the politics 

Enrollment Report: 
1700 Final Count 

Enrollment figures released Mon- 
day showed 1,103 students register- 
ed to take 12 hours or more, the 
highest enrollment since post-World 
War II days of 1946-48. 

In releasing the figures, President 
Jack S. Wilkes also pointed out the 
increased number of dormitory stu- 
dents, 559 compared with 514 at 
this time last year. He said 281 
women are living in the three 
women's dormitories and 278 men 
have quarters in Rotary Cline and 
thetemporary East Colonial Hall. 

Total enrollment is shown to be 
1 ,693, adding 590 part-time and 
evening division students. The full- 
time figure of 1,103 is exceeded in 
the history of the college by 1,410 
in 1947-48 and 1,288 in 1946-47. 

Wilkes stated that the most im- 
portant statistics was the dormitory 
one. "For the second straight year," 
he said, "we have reached a new 
high, and this points up Centenary's 
move towards attracting a greater 
proportion of out-of-town students." 

The breakdown of out-of-town 
new students shows fifteen percent 
from Texas, six percent from Arkan- 
sas, four percent from Illinois, three 
percent from New York, 58 percent 
from Louisiana (219 of which are 
from Shreveport), and 1 4 percent 
from all others. 

In a class-by-class breakdown, 
451 freshmen have registered, com- 
pared with 309 sophomores, 181 
juniors and 162 seniors. Wilkes said 
that the Centenary retention rate 
has increased by almost 20 percent. 
He noted that 123 more students 
are returning this fall than did last 

The ratio of men to women is 
currently 55-45 percent, the same 
percent as last year. There are 608 
full-time men students as against 
495 women. Wilkes said a ratio of 
60-40 is desired in the next two 

Wilkes also stated that he be- 
lieves the college is on schedule 
in making its goal of 1,500 stu- 
dents, full-time, by 1975. 

The results of last year's confer- 
ence were also reviewed. Reports 
were made on the activity fee, 
communication, increased student 
senate freedom, student interest in 
college affairs, the chapel study, 
and the publications scholarships. 

A discussion followed on the role 
and responsibility of the student in 
college government. The issue of 
dormitory regulations, especially as 
applied to the girls, was cited as 
one field of student responsibility. 
A discussion of these regulations 
and of faculty and tenure dominated 
the first Friday session. 

During the next conference dis- 
cussion period, the admission policies 
of the college were reviewed. Schol- 
arships were praised as bringing 
academic quality to the college in 
order to compete in the level of 
excellence. Not only were academic 
scholarships discussed, but basketball 
scholarships were also evaluated for 
their worth. 

A discussion of dormitory hours 
for girls was next on the agenda. 
Many students expressed their views 
for more liberal dorm hours, placing 
responsibility upon the individual 
students. Experimenting with new 
hours is scheduled to start in the 
spring. Dormitory open-houses were 
also discussed. 

The student activity fee was dis- 
cussed during the third session. . . 
SGA expenditures were announced 
along with certain college expendi- 

The educational program and cur- 
riculum were next on the agenda. 
A new system of giving final exam- 
inations was reviewed along with 
the technicalities of the Honor Court 
involved in such a system. 

The subject of academic excellence 
was again brought up in a discussion 
of the studnet's individual interests 
and desires. Emphasis was placed 
on the importance of a true liberal 
arts education. 

The final discussion session en- 
tailed an evaluation of the fraternal 
system on campus. New ideas con- 
cerning rush and pledging were 
discussed. From this discussion arose 
a concern for the independents, the 
majority of whom are actually voice- 
less, and whose individual interest 
in the college is a minimum. The 
discussion closed and the Second 
President's Conference concluded. 

Throughout the conference, par- 
ticipants were given the chance to 
get together and informally discuss 
certain prbolems or even more im- 
portant just to meet each other and 
thus open a channel for future com- 
munication. These informal discus- 
sions, whether over the bridge table 
or while feeding the ducks, seemed 
to contribute much to the exchange 
of ideas. 

Following last year's conference 
there was another short meeting held 
in town last spring. At this meeting 
the participants in the fall conference 
met anddiscussed the progress that 
had been made since their fall meet- 
ing. It is expected that there will be 
a similar meeting to follow this

The following is an Editorial from the student newspaper of 
Amherst in Mass., which outlines the policy of their paper. 

The Role of the STUDENT 

The Amherst Student, by the very nature of its name, 
exists to inform the students at Amherst College. But this is 
not enough. 

We believe that the role of the Amherst Student should 
be that of catalyst in a continuing dialogue of intellectual peers, 
be they students, alumni, deans, faculty members, or the Presi- 
dent of the College. Our task lies, essentially, in helping to de- 
fine what issues are important, which issues are worthy of de- 
bate. Thus, a controversy involving at the outset only a small 
group of students may be given more coverage than a lecture 
attended by 75 people in the Babbott Room, because the former 
presents an issue which should and must be discussed. 

The Student may often taken an editorial stand overtly 
shared by only a small group of students. How then can the 
paper be said to fulfill its primary function, that of represent- 
ing the views of all Amherst students? The answer is, that 
the paper represents those students "who give a damn," no 
matter how they fit into our editorial policy. Our obligation as 
a college newspaper is to convince students of the necessity 
of defining their own position, on the basis of all arguments. 
If, as it is often said, Amherst students are apathetic, this is 
not something we as students, or anyone connected with the 
College, should be proud of. 

This year's Student will try to provoke, persuade, cajole, 
and con a silent majority into speaking up, into recognizing 
that the role of the student— in the college, in the nation, in 
the world— is more than that of deference to the ideas of eld- 

This role involves a continual process of growth through 
questioning, an awareness of equal responsibility in the edu- 
cational process coupled with a willingness to listen to the ad- 
vice of anyone. 

We hope that all readers of the Student will feel free to 
come down into our offices in Pratt Basement and argue with 
us, will feel free to call us up at any time. We hope that you 
will have enough conviction and confidence in your views to 
send them into the paper, that you will make this year's 
Student a focal point of a dialogue involving an ever-broaden- 
ing spectum of people and ideas. It is only then that the Am- 
herst Student will be truly worthy of its name.

These past few weeks I've heard 
some pretty misconstrued opinions 
about "Chapel" and it seems neces- 
sary that someone attempt to syn- 
thesize some principles so that we 
can come to some common under- 
standing of what Centenary Chapel 
really is. To use Webster's defini- 
tion of "Chapel" would be to evade 
what actually takes place during 
these deprived hours. 

Now to begin with, if you came 
to college to escape compulsory 
worship, you goofed! Most Church- 
supported colleges have required 
chapel— only twice a week! If you 
rebel against "forced religion," stop 
complaining long enough to look 
at this semester's program: the 
Chapels with only three "religious" 
speakers which- are your college 
President, Chaplain and a professor 
of counseling from a top graduate 
school. Still complaining? Well, you 
can skip three of these because 
you're only required to meet two- 
thirds of these debased programs; 
but I'm afraid an all-college con- 
vocation is just one of those neces- 
sities for a Centenary education. 

Now to the question at hand- 
How does Chapel fit into your edu- 
cation plan at Centenary College? 
If you're here for an education, not 
just a degree, draft exemption, or 
a chance to get away from Mother, 
then you will find that the fringe 
benefits are what make Centenary 
a great college. Forums, lyceums, 
and chapel are part of the cultural 
aspects of your Centenary educa- 
tion. In this light, demanding free- 
dom from compulsory Chapel is as 
far out as demanding freedom from 
compulsory class attendance. Both 
are part of your education and 
even allow three "cuts." 

Perhaps Assembly or Con"ocation 
would be a better title for this pro- 
gram, but as long as you under- 
stand what it is you are actually 
participating in— "a rose by any 
other name is still a rose." Let's 
face it; there's a reason for a 
church to to support this college. 
Those who give over sixty percent 
of the funds for our education pav 
for a well-rounded education. Let's 
just be grateful we don't have bi- 
weekly sermons <>nd a Fridav night 
twelve o'clock curfew. For those of 
you who came here for both an 
education and religious exoerience, 
I hope we're not cheating you.

The English Proficiency Test 
will be given on Saturday morn- 
ing, October 22, 1966, from 8:00 
until 12:00 in Rooms 107-108 of 
the R. E. Smith Religion Building. 

The following people must take

All juniors and seniors who 
have not yet passed it The pass- 
ing of this test is a requirement 
for graduation from this College. 

Students should bring the fol- 
lowing materials with them to the 
test: pen, ink, lined note- 
paper, and dictionary. 

Address any inquiries about 
the test to Dr. Lee Morgan of the 
English Department, Jackson Hall 

What Is Your Psychological State? 
Here's How To Find Out 


This test is designed to determine your psychological state. Each 
question is of the utmost importance to the final results. Be perfectly 
honest, and answer each question with the first thing that comes to 
your mind (i.e., with the first thing among the possible choices that 
comes to your mind). Each question may be answered one of three ways: 

1. Definitely So 

2. Can't Decide 

3. Of Course Not 

Simply put DS, CD, or OCN in the blank directly preceding the ques- 
tion. (Note: DS indicates "Definitely So"; CD indicates "Can't De- 
cide"; OCN indicates "Of Course Not.") 

Work rapidly; there is a time limit. Use only blue or black ink. 
Do not fold or mutilate this test in any way. Do not leave your desk 
for any reason until you complete the test. (Note: In case of an em- 
ergency, finish quickly). Keep the test right side up, exactly on the 
center of your desk. Keep your eyes on your own test. Remember, you 
are taking this test under rhe Honor System. Violaters of the Honor 
System will receive an automatic score of "Idiot." We want to determine 
your mentality, not your neighbor's. 

Remember, be very careful of the way you answer these questions. 
Your test results will be an important factor in determining whether 
or not you will be allowed to remain at Centenary. 

Now sit back and relax. Enjoy yourself. This can be fun! 

Did you find the test instructions difficult to understand? 

Do you sleep with a teddy bear? 

Would you be afraid to sleep with a teddy bear? 

Do you have a teddy bear? 

Did you like your fourth-grade teacher more than you liked 

your kindergarten teacher? 

(Omit this question if you did not attend kindergarten). 

(Also omit if you skipped the fourth grade). 

(Specify reason for omitting if you omit). 

Have you ever had scarlet fever on Halloween? 

Do you daydream in classes? 

Do your grandparents beat you? 

Do you wish you had a teddy bear? 

(Omit this question if you do have a teddy bear or a 

reasonable facsimile). 

10. Do you suffer from emancipation? 

11. Are you afraid of dragons? 

12. Have you had your adenoids removed? 

13. Do you hate your dentist? 

14. Are a stack of comic books and a basket of fruit your idea 

of a fun-filled Saturday night? 

_15. Does the idea of a fire drill while you're in the shower 
scare you? 

—16. Does the idea of a fire drill while you're in the shower 
amuse you? 

17. Does the idea of a shower scare you? 

_18. Do you believe in the Great Pumpkin? (with apologies to 
Santa Claus) 

Please complete this test, sign the honor pledge, and turn in your 
paper. You will be notified of the results. 

Now wasn't that fun? Just think how much better you'll feel by 
knowing exactly how you stand psychologically 1 


If you have 17 or more CD's, you sometimes tend to be less 
decisive than the average student. Be firm! 

If you have 17 or more DS's, you may have read some of the 

questions carelessly. Be careful! 

If you have 18 OCN's, you're perfect and will not be notified of 
your test results. Be modest!

An Exposition On The 
Advisibility Of Hazing 


The unfair and pointless tradition of freshman 
hazing is at last making its exit from the Centenary 
campus. Up until three years ago, Centenary had 
quite a full program of hazing. Then in 1963 the 
student senate voted to ban freshman haircuts— and 
they voted for a progressive step forward. Last year, 
about six hundred students (excluding the seniors) 
voted to again have freshman beanies. Now— where 
are the six hundred advocators? 

More slowly than surely, we are growing up. 

What is the motivation behind the idea? Haz- 
ing is defined as "harrassing by banter, ridicule, or 
critism." So these are our methods of making the 
freshmen welcome and united?? Not really. These 
are our methods of boosting our own ego ("...where's 
your beanie?") and clinging to tradition for the sake 
of tradition (..."but we've always done it.") 

The principle is WRONG!! The basic idea of 
any form of ridicule is HUMILIATION . . . Degradation 
. . . Discrimination . . 

It is almost primitive. 

Someone will make another freshman wear a 
beanie. Or sing the alma mater. Or carry a tray. 
But the URJust and senseless practice of freshman 
hazing is on its way off the Centenary campus. And 
it is about time.

Our ever-vigilant Right Wing warns us that secret Communist 
infiltrators are about to make a concerted effort to take over the Ameri- 
can labor movement again. 

This certainly is alarming news. Most alarmed is my friend, Mr. 
Rasputin G. Pettibone, the well-known secret Communist infiltrator. 

"Oh, no!" cried Mr. Pettibone, on hearing the news. "I can't go 
through that again." 

And with a shudder of pain Mr. Pettibone recounted his heroic 
attempt to take over and subverr the International Brotherhood of Smel- 
ters, Puddlers & Coupon Clippers. 

It was at the Brotherhood's recent convention in that heart of 
trade union activity, Miami Beach. On orders from the Parry, Mr. Petti- 
bone cleverly disguised himself as a typical labor leader — Louis Roth 
suit, Countess Mara tie and alligator shoes. 

On taking his seat on the platform, Mr. Pettibone found the con- 
vention engaged in a vigorous floor fight over a resolution condemning 
management for "selfishly disregarding the welfare of the American 
working man by callously refusing to provide adequate plant facilities 
to meet his on-the-job needs." 

"Sweat shop conditions, eh?" Mr. Pettibone whispered happily to 
his neighbor. "What is it, specifically? Dangerous machinery? Back- 
breaking loads? Obsolete tools?" 

"No, inadequate facilities to chill white wine," his neighbor ex- 
plained. "You can imagine how a man feels, having to wash down his 
pressed-duck sandwich with a dry Bordeaux." 

Mr. Pettibone, not being able to think of a dialectic covering the 
situation, wisely took no side in the debate. But as soon as it ended he 
grabbed the microphone and, pointing heavenward, cried: "Arise, ye 
prisoners of starvation!" 

For a moment, it appeared he might sway the throng, many 
brothers not having had a hot hors d'oeuvre since lunch. But one dele- 
gate rose to a point of order, noting that the banquet in the Louis XIV 
A-Go-Go room wasn't scheduled until 8 p.m. and "we must adhere to 
the agenda." 

Changing tacks, Mr. Pettibone warned that "Wall Street was 
milking the blood of the Brotherhood and . . ." 

But the Secretary-Treasurer angrily arose to point out the union's 
$87.3 million in assetts were cautiously invested in mutual funds, muni- 
cipal securities and first deeds of trust. His report consumed three hours. 

As a last resort, Mr. Pettibone launched a tirade against "those 
who would exploit your labors, those who would seize the fruits of your 
honest toil, those idle men who live off the sweat of your brow!" 

At last his ringing words - hit home. And after minimum debate 
the Brotherhood passed a unanimous resolution condemning "the con- 
fiscatory income tax." 

Since then, Mr. Pettibone has been recovering slowly. To revive 
his crushed spriit, the Party has assigned him an area more fertile for 
subversion, more ripe for the message, than trade unions. Narurally, he 
prefers it. 

"Maybe rhey haven'r got the class or the money," he says, "but 
I like working with the National Association of Manufacturers.

When young JORGE MOREL and his gifted guitar appear 
here on October 13 at 10:30 in the Chapel, he may offer an exciting 
South American medley of "West Side Story" runes. He may create 
a Villa Lobos relude. He may adapt from De Falla or Gershwin, 
Albeniz or Torroba. He may give to the audience an exquisite and 
melodic work he himself has written. Whatever his repertoire, 
listeners here will be as thrilled by his virtuosity as were the buffs 
in the capital cities of South America or the enthusiasts at the 
Village Gate and the Embers Club in New York. 

MOREL mixes his classic with his modern, his warmth and 
lyricism with his Spanish flamboyance and excitement, his brilliance 
in instrumentality with his appeal for the average music lover — in 
the manner of a master far beyond his years.

Football Season Starts 
With Inter-league Games 

Football season has arrived, the first ball has been kicked and 
the first bruises are beginning to ache. This year's activiries began 
different than previous years with the matching of several teams from 
different leagues in pre-season games. Although these games did not 
"count" toward the championship and were for practice, they were the 
scene of some rough and tumble football. 

This year there are two leagues of football teams which first 
compete among themselves, followed by the championship game be- 
tween the best team from each league. This plan is supposed to in- 
crease the interest in the games and to allow rivalry to develop among 
the two leagues rather than just games. 
The leagues are divided as fol- games. 


League A 

Kappa Alpha 


Kappa Sigma 



TKE #2 
League B 

Killer's Boys 

Cossa's Robbers 

TKE #1 

Delta Alpha 

Kappa Alpha #2 

Games this year will be played 
Monday thru Thursday beginning at 
approximately 5:15 each day. Three 
fields will be used for the games— 
Hardin Field and two fields at the 
Gents Baseball Park. All three fields 
are easily accessible to all students 
and everyone is urged to attend th = 

European Tour 
Is Scheduled 

A grand tour of Europe, covering 
10 different countries, is being 
sponsored by the Centenary Alumni 
Association for this summer and is 
open to students and their families. 

According to Alumni Director Bob 
Durand, the tour will be three 
weeks from July 19 to August 9 
and will include an itinerary of 
England, Belgium, Holland, Germ- 
any, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Aus- 
tria, Italy, Monaco, and France. 

The cost of the trip will be $750 
per person, all-inclusive from New 
York to New York except for sev- 
eral meals in London and Paris. 
Air transportation will be economy 
class with most land accomodations 
first class. 

Durand said the trip has been 
made available to all Centenary 
alumni, faculty, staff, students, and 
parents of students. Friends of the 
College will also have the oppor- 
tunity to go if vacancies exist. 

A deposit of $75 per persin wil 1 
be due before January 1 for all 
persons wishing to take the tour, 
with the remainder of the cost due 
on June 1. All arrangements are 
being handled through the Cochran- 
Bates Travel Agency in Shreveport. 
Complete details on the trip are 
now available in the Alumni Office, 
Room 23 of the Administration 

There are several excellnt tarns in 
the leagues this year and the writer 
is certainly sticking his neck out, 
but the following teams seem to 
have the best chance at the cham- 

Killer's Boys, last year's winner,

strong with the return of Ronnie 
Forrest, Jonathan Cooke, Phil Jen-

When the curtain rises tonight on the final night of competition for the title cf Miss Centenary

I and O Rules Set 
For Coming Year 

On Thursday, October 6. the first meeting of Issues and Opinions, 
Centenary's free speech forum, was held in front of Moore Student 

I and O Committee Chairman, 
Lolly Tindol, opened the meeting 
by stating that the I and O program 
is an outlet for student and faculty 
opinions paterned after LSU's Free 
Speech Alley. She then introduced 
as a discussion topic the suggested 
final exam system. The proposed 
testing procedure, which would in- 
volve an extension of the honor 
code, was discussed at length as 
was the suggested grading system 
in which a student would either 
pass or fail. 

Among students who spoke about 
these issues were Joe Loupe, Al- 
bert Benoit, Lou Popejoy, Milton 
Lindsay and Alton McKnight. The 
only faculty member participating 
was Mrs. Isle Bissell. 

In Miss Tindol's words, the pur- 
pose of I and O's is "to stimulate 
students to think on their feet arjd 
give them the oportunity to par- 
ticipate in programs that may change 
school policy." She also stated that 
"I and O will succeed if both stu- 
dent and faculty participate." 

Issues and Opinions was establi- 
shem last year under the leadership 
of Dick Grisham, who organized the 
committee. The following rules were 
then set up to regulate hte discus- 

1. Participation in Issues and Opi- 
nions is limited to students, fac- 
ulty and staff of Centenary. 

2. Organized groups shall not be 
allowed to dominate Issues and 

3. Obscenity, cursing or other in- 
decencies will not be tolerated 

4. Comments, Critism and ques- 
tions of the speakers are en- 
couraged but a sense of fair 
play shall prevail. 

5. The soap boxes must be sur- 
rendered at a closing time desig- 
nated by the Issues and Opin- 
ions Committee. 


A member of the Issues and 
Opinions Committee shall act as 
moderator and has the right to 
halt discussion and remove the 
soap boxes upon violation of 
one of the above rules. 

— Miss Tindol stat- 
ed that these rules 
will be followed 
at all times. 

Miss Tindol re- 
marked that she 
would like to see 
more faculty par- 
ticipation, but ad- 
ded that she thought the first meet- 
ing was "quite successful." There 
were approximately one huundred 
students in attendance. 

Students who have ideas or sug- 
gestions about the program are urg- 
ed to contact Miss Tindol through 
the Student Senate. Other mem- 
bers of the committee are James 
Anderson, Sissy Mas'ers, Joe Price, 
Lou Popeioy and Allan Williams.

Guest Chemist 

On Cosmos 

Dr. Paul K. Kuroda, Professor of 
Chemistry at the University of Ark- 
ansas, held a seminar on "The Ori- 
gin and Age of Chemical Elements" 
in Mickle Hall Wednesday. Dr. Ku- 
roda, who was born and educated 
in Japan, has been actively engaged 
in cosmochemical research for sev- 
eral years. 

Dr. Kuroda spoke about a new. 
method which allows scientists to 
determine the actual age of forma- 
tion of elements from supernovae 
explosions. This method, which 
makes use of plutonium-244, is 
similar to carbon-14, methods of age 
determination, but it has several ad- 

Carbon-14 is created in several 
ways, and if is impossible to de- 
termine how a given sample came 
into being. But plutonium-244 is cre- 
ated only in supernovae explosions. 
By measuring the extent of decay, 
it is possible to determine how long 
ago this particular element and 
those immediately surrounding it 
were created. 

The settings and decoration of 
the stage show will be the product 
of the able hand of Patric Ewing 
Lucienne Bond, Bobby Critcher and

Last night, the twenty-six con- 
testants competed in the preliminary 
events of talent performance and 
appearance in evening gowns. Yes- 
terday afternoon, the girls met with 
the judges for a tea at the home of 
Mrs. Fannie Lee Nichols. After this 
tea, each girl was given the oppor- 
tunity of talking to the judgas pri- 
vately. This was to give the judges 
a chance to observe the girls closely 
and to judge their personality and 
poise. This afternoon, the contes- 
tants were guests of the pageant at 
Eastridge Country Club for an in- 
formal hour and for the swimsuit 
portion of the competition. 

Tonight, the ten semi-finalists 
will be named from the group of 
contestants, and will again compete 
in the categories of evening gown 
and talent performance. After these 
events are completed, the judges 
will name the five finalists for the 
title of Miss Centenary. Each of these 
girls will be asked a question con- 
cerning their personal hobbies or 
interests. After a brief period of 
deliberation, the judges will rank 
the five finalists by naming Miss 
Centenary and her court of four 
runnerpp. In addition to the awards 
presented to the top five, awards 
will also be presented to the win- 
ners in each division of the contest. 


The English Proficiency Test

The following is a guest editorial from Boston

"What'sa matter?" 

"I just can't get with this study bit, this 
whole lousy routine, ya know?" 

"Yeah, sorta. It's a pain. But ya gotta 
live with it."

so! Ya can get out if ya want. One more 
lousy test and I'm gettin' out. It's that simple, 
man. I gotta discover myself, the real me, I 

"Ya mean ya thinkin' of droppin' out?" 

"Yeah. What the hell! I can learn a lot 
more out in the real world. I can join the 
Peace Corps or something. Or just travel and 
meet people and really find out how I feel 
about a lotta things, ya know?" 

"I guess so. But the draft'll get ya if ya 
don't watch it. What about that?" 

"I'll worry about that when the time 
comes. Right now, I'm ready to blow up. All 
this petty routine - up at eight, classes 'til 
noon, lunch, more classes, dinner, study, bed, 
every day. I tell ya, it stinks. My draft board's 
so screwed up it'll be a miracle if they ever 
get me. I don't care anyway. Nothin' could 
be worse than the crummy routine . . ." 

"Yeah, I guess so. Whatcha gonna do?" 

"I'm gettin' out for sure. After this 
semester, that's it! I'll come back when I'm 
good and ready. That's all there is to it." 

From conversations like the above the 
nation is supplied most often with three 
kinds of people: soldiers, failures or great 
men. Which would you be?

The period of public mourn- 
ing over the death of God 
seems to have passed; a big 
thing in religious symbols is 
now a Yellow Submarine, the 
Holy Trinity has become a 
quartet, and the Alleluia Chorus 
requires an electric guitar. 

Needless to say this is the 
Year of our Lord— 1966, B. C. — 
B. C. being, of course, Beatle 
Century. The western world is 
hearing the first cries of wor- 
ship this week: "John not Jes- 
us." And as is true of most die- 
ties, the popularity of the cur- 
rent idols is suddenly dubious. 

Obviously when John Lennon 
— the Beatle sitting highest on 
Mount Olympus — announced 
some weeks ago that "the Bea- 
tles are more popular than Jes- 
us," he undoubtedly thought 
that he was merely stating fact. 
It seems, however, that at that 
point he had initiated a cult. 

Long worshipped but never of- 
ficially sanctified, the Beatles 
began somewhat unobtrusively 
in a place called the Cavern in 
Liverpool, England. The whole 
set-up was not much unlike the 
manger scene where Christ 
made his first appearance 2,000 
years before. People came and 
kind of stared— both at the In- 
fant Christ and at the singers. 

Other similarities cannot be 
easily overlooked either. Both 
Christ and the Beatles were fat- 
ed for destinies with the stars, 
both performed miracles (the 
Beatles being able to turn doc- 
ile, apathetic, teenage girls into 
screaming beasts), both experi- 
enced surging popularity and 
large followings only to find 
themselves eventually called 

Both Christ and the Beatles 
knew they were doomed . . . 
rock and roll and religion are 
fickle. The Beatles have been 
waiting for "their downfall" for 
several months now. Both have 
witnessed angry mobs. It may 
not be long before fanatics are 
throwing rocks at the Beatles 
instead of kisses. 

Significantly, the Beatles 
even have a gospel of their own. 
Twentieth century communica- 
tion has enabled the singers to 
reach thousands without the aid 
of loaves and fishes. Their 
words are immorality incribed 
on discs . . . Lyrics such as 
those of Nowhere Man and El- 
eanor Rigby are as didatical 
and thought-provoiring as the 
sermons of Christ. 

And why shouldn't the Bea- 
tles become the successors to 
Christ? They're alive, enthusi- 
astic, current, and palatable. 
Besides it's just as easy to say 
"John, Paul, George and Rln- 
go" as it is to say "Fatker, Son 
and Holy Ghost."

"The Visitor" 

(Circa 1881) 
Mary Cassatt 

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of articles writ- 
ten exclusively for the Conglomerate featuring examples of Centenary's 
College Library's exceptional art collection which includes the work of 
many famous artists.) 


Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), who is generally recognized as Amer- 
ica's most famous woman painter, was a native of Pennsylvania. Dis- 
satisfied with her art training in the United States, she went to Paris 
in 1868 to study under Chaplin. In 1877, she met her lifelong friend 
Degas, who invited her to exhibit with the Impressionists. 
"Impressionism" is the term used collections of its kind, the 

to designate the style of artists, in- 
cluding Miss Cassatt, Degas, Renoir, 
and Monet, who found delight in 
pure color and joy in their attempt 
to emphasize lighting. Rather than 
try for a careful or meticulous 
rendering of a landscape or of peo- 
ple, the Impressionist sought to cap- 
ture the "impression" of a single 
moment by quick, bold brushwork 
and exciting, bright coloring. 

Miss Cassatt's subjects were gen- 
erally ladies at tea or at the opera, 
and mothers with their children. 
"The Visitor" is an example of her 
sensitivity to everyday life. Or. 
David Kimball gave "The Visitor" 
to the library in 1964. "The Visitor" 
(ca. 1881) is a soft ground and 
quaint engraving. This engraving 
was once a part of the Degas collec- 
tion. Despite the limitations of the 
medium of engraving, Miss Cassatt 
achieves a sense of spontaneity, 
especially noticeable in the seated 
figure, and renders a fine study of 
lights and darks. 

outstanding as 
woman painter 

Miss Cassatt is 
America's foremost 
and equally important because of 
the influence she had on the pur- 
chases of American art dealers and 
art collectors. She bought many of 
the Impressionists' paintings for her- 
self and her family and also en- 
couraged many foremost collectors 
to do the same. As a result of her 
efforts, the United States is con- 
sidered to have one of the finest 
collections of French art in the 
world. One of the most remarkable 

its kind, the Have 
meyer Collection in the Metropoli- 
tan Museum of Art, is the result of 

the purchases of Mrs. H. O. Have- 
meyer. She considered Miss Cassat 
the foremost authority on French 
art. In recognition of Mary Cassatt's 
accomplishments the United States 
will soon issue a commemorative 
stamp in her honor. 

"The Visitor" will be on soecial 
display in the librarv throughout the 
week Also included in the display 
will be a few reproductions of some 
of her greatest paintings. 

Teague To Play 
First Recital 

WILLIAM TEAGUE, Assistant Profes- 
sor of Music at Centenary College,

Senate Elections Set 
October 19, 20 and 21 

Charles Park announced Friday that the Centenary freshmen will 
elect the senators on October 19, 20 and 21. Mr. Park, acting chairman 
of the elections committee in the absence of co-chairman Jimmy Journey, 
stated that six candidates are involved. 
The candidates for male senator 

are Tom Stone, Steve Mayer and 
Bill Garfield. The candidates for fe- 
male senator are Paula Boyd, Janie 
Kizer and Terri Ebel. 

The election procedure will in- 
.volve three days. On Wednesday, 
October 19th, the freshmen town 
students will vote in the Student 
Union Building on the stage. They 
will vote from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 

On Thursday, October 20th, the 
freshmen dormitory students will 
vote in their respective dorms in 
the main lobbies. They will vote 
from 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. 

In the event of a runoff, elec- 
tions will be held again on Friday, 
October 21st. Once again, town stu- 
dents will vote in the S. U. B. from 
8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The dorm 
students will also vote again in their 
respective dorms from 4:30 to7:30 

The election will be accomplished 
through ballots. Each ballot will 
contain the six candidates' names 
along with instructions on voting 
procedures. Each freshman student 
is allowed to vote once for both 
a male and female senator. 

Charles Park requests that all mem- 
bers of the election committee be 
in the Student Senate Room of the 
S. U. B. by 7:30 p.m. on Friday, 
October 21st. The ballots will then 
be tallied and the results posted 
in the S. U. B. 

Dick Grisham, president of the 
Student Senate, stated that the two 
winning candidates will automati- 
cally be members of the Senate at 
the moment of their victory. While 
speaking of his hopes for the com- 
ing election, however, Mr. Grisham 
warned the voters that the quickest 
and easiest way to undermine a 
strong student government is to 
elect "class favorites" in stead of 
"senators". Candidates for freshman 
senator agreed to this statement 
during the interviews. 

The duties of the Freshmen Sen- 
ators of this year cannot actually be 
outlined. But their first official act 
will be to attend the Student Sen- 
ate meeting on the following Wed- 
nesday. Besides serving as active vot- 
ing members on the senate, the 
Freshmen Senators will serve on 
the various student committees of 
the Senate. 

One unusual fact about this elec- 
tion is that it will be the only fresh- 
men election other than class favor- 
ite elections at the end for the yar. 
Freshman Class officers and fresh- 
man cheerleaders will not be elec- 
ted this year. 

The ( freshman senators are the 
only representatives of the freshmen 
in his student government. Because 
of this, further caution was urged 
to the voters by some of the can- 
didates as well as Grisham. 

Grisham also expressed his need 
and the Senate's need for vigorous 
workers on the new programs ac- 
tivated by the President's Confer- 
ence. The importance of this year's 
Freshman Senators can best b° ex- 
pressed by the work reauired by 
the Senate of Centenary College. 


The first meeting of Alpha Chi 
honorary scholastic fraternity for 
juniors and seniors with an over-all 
average of 3.5 or above, was held 
October 9 at the home of Dr. Pate. 

At this time, the November in- 
duction of new members was dis- 
cussed, and various plans were 
made for the coming year's activi- 
ties. The officers for the coming 
year include Gaylon Daigle, presi- 
dent; John Goodwin, vice president; 
Sarah Smith, secretary and Polly Page 
treasurer. The faculty advisors are 
Dr. Lee Morgan, Dr. W. W. Pate, 
and Dr. Viva L. Rainey.

Having been involved in student 
government in high school, I real- 
ize the importance of an influential 
Student Senate. My previous work 
in student govrenment created my 
interest in the role of the Student 
Senate at Centenary. 
I I 

At the Freshman Orientation and 
the Student Senate Chapel, I became 
aware of the extensive influence 
and authority of the Student Senate. 
It became obvious to all of us as 
freshmen that the Centenary Stu- 
dent Senate exerts a respected in- 
fluence on all facets of campus life. 
This results from the student's recog- 
nition of the need for qualified peo- 
ple who have creative ideas and an 
ability to express these ideas in a 
persuasive manner. 

The activity fee, the effective 
Honor Code, and the revised Chapel 
program illustrate the advancements 
of our Student Senate in the last 
two years. This is a direct result of 
diligent work and the successful 
leadership of our Senators. 

To maintain this influential Stu- 
dent Senate which Centenary now 
possesses, we must realize the dual 
responsibility of a successful stu- 
dent government. Both the Fresh- 
man Senator's responsibility to his 
class, and the freshman's respon- 
sibility to promote the advance- 
ment of student government, are 
essential. As a candidate fo- " esh- 
man Senator, I am acutely cware of 
these responsibilities, and I con- 
scientiously accept the duties of this

A Freshman Senator is responsible 
for representing the freshman class 
at all gatherings of the Student Sen- 
ate. This I will do to the very best 
of my ability if I am elected 
Freshman Senator for the 1966-67 
school year. Since the freshmen are 
the numerically superior group on 
campus, I feel that the Student 
Senate should recognize our numer- 
ical superiority and give to us the 
freedom and other benefits which 
we deserve. We have been told 
that we are no longer children, that 
we must act like adults, and yet we 
are consistently treated like chil- 
dren. I do not understand why we 
are treated in this way, but I will 
try to do my best to correct this 
situation. This includes the practice 
of freshman hazing. 

I advocate certain policies which 
are in effect now, including the 
Forums program which I will streng- 
then as much as possible. However, 
I have no intentions of becoming the 
Campus Good Guy who merely sits 
back and agrees with everything 
which he is told to agree with to 
knows nothing about. I intend to 
keep well informed on all issues 
with which the Student Senate is 
concerned. However, most impor- 
tant, Bill Garfield intends to repre- 
sent the freshman class and no 
other group or organization.

In just the past few years a new 
trend in the student government of 
private colleges has been develop- 
ing, all over the United States. Stu- 
dent governments are being given 
a greater, more responsible part in 
combating the old problem of in- 
effective communication between the 
administration, the faculty, and the 
students. The administration, realiz- 
ing the need for new ideas in the 
area of the student's role in college 
government, is allowing him more 
and more freedom to express and 
try out his own thoughts. These 
ideas, when formed into actual poli- 
cy, may fall. But every time the stu- 
dent is successful in making a goal 
a reality, he gains added respect 
from his professors and his admin- 
istrative advisors. With this added 
freedom and support given to him, 
the student is developing a new, 
more effective type of student gov- 

Aftre five short weeks, I am 
aware that the Centenary Student 
Senate is growing toward this new 
trend in responsible Student lead- 
ership. The organization of the 
President's Conference on Student 
Life shows how cooperation and 
communication between all facets of 
campus life are gaining in import- 
ance. With an honest communication 
of ideas, the Senate is now able to 
relate more closely to the students' 
problems. The Orientation and the 
Chapel Program has showed me the 
Senate's place in campus life and 
its growing freedom to exercise re- 

Our Student Senate has proposed 
many new goals for the future. My 
desire is to be a part of making 
these goals a reality.

In any major election there are 
various ideals of which a candidate 
is representative. With these ideals 
in mind, he is able to state his be- 
liefs in the form of a platform. 
From this platform, a student can 
therefore determine whom he is 
going to support. It is the main ob- 
jective of any candidate during an 
election to gain this confidence and 
support from his fellow students. 

With a positive mind I will do 
my best as a representative of the 
New Tradition to obtain betterment 
in various aspects of college life on 
campus. In doing so, the march for 
progress will advance as the New 
Tradition proves itself even greater. 
I believe in the continuation of 
progress in such committees as the 
Ad Hoc Committee and the Forums 
Committee, which aid in the opera- 
tion of our Student Senate. Though 
these committees are composed of 
few, I believe that more students 
should take an active part in their 
programs. Likewise, it will be my 
incentive to spur student attendance 
at all athletic contests. With the 
improvement of campus activities, 
student brotherhood will certainly 
increase. In this connection, I will 
wholly support the efforts of the 
chapel on campus to obtain Sunday 
morning services for Centenary stu- 

In summary, I am for the student 
at Centenary, as he is the one who 
possesses the power to advise and 
aid me in the movement for the 
continuation of progress. In my 
great belief in the New Tradition, 
I seek to involve myself in the 
operations of our student govern- 
ment. With these ideals in mind, 
plan to represent you thoroughly. 
In this manner I present mvself and 
my beliefs for the candidacy of 
Freshman Senator.

Being a freshman at Centenary, 
am campaigning for the office of 
Freshman Senator. In the Student 
Senate, I would like to help investi- 
gate the following programs: 

(1) Reorganization of Student Sen- 
ate committee selection. I would 
like to see more efficient means of 
selecting committee members, rath- 
er than by the chapel method. Being 
new, whenever I hear of a com- 
mittee and its members, the same 
names are repeated over and over. 
Are there any independent town 
students on the committees? Why 
can't there be a way to hold posi- 
tions in committees until the fall, 
to be filled with the new fresh- 

(2) Abolition of the platform in 
Student Senate elections. All candi- 
dates should have an opportunity to 
be seen and heard, rather than hav- 
ing to write their ideas. I have 
heard that platforms make very little 
difference in an election, that voters 
only look at qualifications and ap- 
pearances of the candidates. I am 
sure this question has been asked 
before: Who writes the platforms? 

(3) Sensible dormitory regulations. 
Some of the suggested dorm rules 
have been very questionable. I real- 
ize we are young women; however, 
any strength on the part of Senate 
government will be beneficial in the 
long run to those who lack a firmly 
established sense of value. 

Really, I have only my qualifica- 
tions to convince you that I am a 
sound candidate. They show my 
achievement in scholarship, student 
government, and citizenship.

The Freshman Student 
Election comes at a crucial 
the history of Centenary's 
government. As our Senate seeks 
to assume a more important role in 
governing the campus, we, the fresh- 
men of '66-'67, are called on to 
choose two of its members. We 
are in essence deciding whether 
student government at Centenary 
College will be more than a poster- 
tacking, publicity-spreading, and 
rubber-stamping organization in the 
coming years. 

I believe that student gov- 
ernment has a real and relevant 
role to play at Centenary. If the 
students, faculty and administration 
unite, our school could be one of 
the greatest in the South. But this 
ideal will never exist as long as 
the administration is pulling the fac- 
ulty and the students. There must 
be more than a semblance of stu- 
dent government; it must actually 

The Freshman Senate position 
calls for a responsible individual. 
This position needs to be filled not 
by class favorites, but by potential 
student leaders. With a background 
of High School Student Council work, 
and a summer of study and life 
here at Centenary, I pledge that I 
will attempt to fill the office with 
enhusiasm, hard work and perse- 
verance. My only desire is to com- 
municate to you the urgency of the 
need for effective Student Govern- 
men and my intense desire to serve 
you, our class, and the college as a

Miss Centenary 1967 
a chip off the old block 

The time "is here for the "Miss Centenary" Pageant, October 13 
and 14. This traditional activity of the fall brings up questions from 
all over the campus like "Will she be a blonde, red head or brunette? 
Will she be an upperclassman this year?" 

In guessing who will be "Miss 
Centenary" this year, perhaps a com- 
parison of the last few winners 
should be made. The winners since 
1960 have been Val Jean Banta 
(1960-1961, Judy Thurmon (1961- 
1962), Sandra McCuistion (1962- 
1963), Phyllis Payne (1963-1964), 
Lynn Taylor (1964-1965), and Mary 
Tullie Wyrick (1965-1966). Of these 
girls only Lynn Taylor has very 
blonde hair. For the 1966-1967 
pageant almost thre-fourths of the 
contestants are brunettes, which 
could give the blondes a big ad- 
vantage or an equally big disadvant- 
age. Only the judges will be able 
to decide which it is. Seven of the 
girls who have entered were in last 
year's contest. 

Mary Tullie Wyrick, the attractive 
winner of the 1965-1966 pageant 
held last November 19 in the Mar- 
jorie Lyons Playhouse, has been busy 
during her reign. Not only were 
there numerous luncheons, parades, 
and other pageants to attend, but 
also there were many other personal 
appearances to make— as many as 
seven in one day. Even with all of 
her traveling, she still thinks that 
the atmosphere here at Centenary is 
one of the nicest she has seen. This 
staement is certainly appropriate for 
the most beautiful representative of 

The "Miss Centenary" Pageant has 
grown from an election held by the 
men on the campus to a small con- 
test in the R. E. Smith Building to a 
preliminary contest for the "Miss 
Louisiana" Pageant. The talent com- 
petition was added three years ago, 
and the private swimsuit judging 
has been added just this year. Prior 
to las year's competition, a fresh- 
man girl could enter the nageant 
and could be on the court, but she 
could not be "Miss Centenary " Now 
the freshmen also have a chancp for

the coveted title. The crown that 
this year's winner will receive will 
be one fashioned after the "Miss 
America" crown. Also for the f irst 
time prizes will be awarded to the 
new "Miss Centenary" and her court. 
With all these modifica' ; nns being 
made, a person now wonderr. what 
will be the changes in the next five 
years in the history of the "Miss 
Centen^rv" Paoeant. Who kn^ws, 
maybe the 1966-1967 "Miss Cen-

Noted Critic Of Modern Theatre 
Will Give Forums, Lyceum Lectures 

The varied interests of Mrs. Kay Baxter, who will be the first Forums speaker of the semester on 
October 20, converge in theatre and theology, and it is one these subjects that the Danforth Visiting Lec- 
turer will speak, choosing as her topic, "Contemporary Theatre and Religious Communication." 

At a convocation the distinguish- 
ed British educator, writer and 
churchwomen will -speak on "Man 
Alone: The Soliloquy in Modern 
Dramatic Literature." In two infor- 
mal sessions with students and fac- 
ulty she will discuss "Fear and Its 
Brood in Contemporary Plays" and 
"Grace or Gorgon? The Image of

Mrs. Baxter, who was born in 
India, is a member of the distin- 
guished fforde family (her brother. 
Sir Arthur fforde, was formerly 
headmaster of Rigby and Chairman 
of the BBC). She was educated at 
St. Albans High School in Hertford- 
shire on a scholarship, received a 
M.A. degree from Newnham Col- 
lege, Cambridge, with honours in 
French and English Literature and 
Language, and as a scholarship 
holder and prize-winner attended 
the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts 
receiving its diploma. 

She left the professional stags 
after a year in Birmingham Reper- 
atory Theatre and London reproduc- 
tions and was married to F. G. 
Baxter, who was also in theatre 
and opera until his enlistment in 

Before the' war, Mrs. Baxter 
taught and lectured. During the war 
^ears she was transferred to free- 
lance writing and Fleet Street journ- 
alism. She worked with refugees 
and with youth clubs connected with 
ihe Anglican Church. Her husband 
died in the North African campaign. 

After the war Mrs. Baxter was 
University appointments officer for 
the Women's College of Cambridge 
where she was responsible for coun- 
selling and placing all women un- 
dergraduates, research graduates 
and alumnae. In 1965 she retired 
from this work and worked part 
time at the University of Sussex. 

Mrs. Baxter is the author of nu- 
merous plays, essays and poems 

Her series of essays "Contemporary 
Theatre and the Christian Faith" is 
perhaps her best-known work. In 
this short book her purpose is, as 
she states in the preface, "to ob- 
serve the points at which the 'new' 
theatre can illuminate some of the 
problems which Christians face in 
understanding and communicating 
their faith." She traces recent con- 
tacts between theatre and church, 
and in doing so touches on the 
owrk of Arthur Miller, Tennessee 
Williams and T. S. Eliot, among 
others. In an early chapter Mrs. 
Baxter says that these "writers, like 
artists of other kinds, are constant-

The following are quotes from Mrs. Baxter's "Contemporary 
Theatre and the Christian Faith." 

"The main task of Christian students of drama is to build bridges, 
and if we are to be any use in building a communications line between 
the artist and the church and in making the insights of the seers avail- 
able to deepen our own shallow thinking, let alone if we are going to 
be any help to the artists in their search for the unknown God, then 
we have to get inside them and understand the nature of their trouble, 
being prepared to bar no questions." 

"It is possible thai we are at the moment in a phase of di 
genuinely anticipathetic to the Christian doctrine which seeks to 
plain that God who is found 'within ourselves'. And there is a bleak 
neutral strip between Christian and non-Christian when it comes to the 
discussion of the meaning of the new theatre." 

"Christian theologians are not yet accustomed to devote much 
time to discussion with playwrights as rhej grappli with the mystery of 
the human spirit's nature. Yet they are greatly needed h< 

"The contemporary theatre offers Christians an enrichment of 
which they are not nearly enough aware. Even those of us who think 
we believe with the simple faith of our forebears deceive ourselves. 
We cannot contract out of our environment."

Readers Theater To Present 
"An Evening With Sandburg" 

The cast will include Gene Hay, 
a senior from Lake Charles major- 
ing in speech and drama, Charles 
Park, a senior huumanities major from 
Springhill, and Carol Thomas, a 
junior from Shawnee, Oklahoma 
who is also a drama major. 

Miss Alexander explains that this 
reading initiates the "use of a mix- 
ture of music, prose, and poetry in 
the Reader's Thearer. In the past 
productions, readings have been 
adapted from novels, but the prose 
of the alt-American Carl Sandburg 
cannot be limited in such a fashion. 
One facet of the- reading is lighted 
by folk songs drawn from Sand- 
burg's collection in the "American 
Sandbag." Steve Murray, well-known 
for his talent in the musical writing 
field, ir furnishing his own inter- 
pretations of the music used in this 
scene. Gene Hay sings the folk 

music to accompanying guitars play- 
ed by Steve and himself. 

Few props and little staging is 
involved, the entire play will center 
around a rocking-chair. This rocking- 
ch^ir stands as a figurehead of 
Sandburg, and signifies the "down- 
to-earth" American love Sandburg 
holds for his country. Little emphasis 
is placed on other stage properties 
w-hich include two high stools. 

No elaboration in costuming is 
pursued. Charles and Gene wili 
both wear tuxedos, while Carol's 
dress is an evening formal gown. 
These simulated costumes will sug- 
gest other clothing by drawing on 
the audience's imagination in differ- 
ent situations. 

This is the first of thf> shows 
that is included in the Student 
Activity Fee. 

Betty Herolz, University of Texas, asks 

"Can you face up to a close up?' 

Clean, clear complexion can stand any 
close up test. Medicated OJ's Beauty Lo- 
tion really cleans and clears ..... re- 
freshes, too. It's the best close up treat 
you can give your skin because it works 
three ways: as an effective cleanser, a 
refreshing astringent, and a medicated aid 
in the treatment of acne pimples. 

For close up beauty, try OJ's! 


Burlington Gold Cu 
Too Many Colors to 

Fabulous colors, from the 
brights to the deep, dark concerva- 
fives. And they're the softest socks 
in the world. Thick, too. How can a 
guy improve on a casual sock like 
that? Unless it's with a dressy over- 
the-calf Gold Cup Exec, of course. 
Regular length, 1.50. Exec, 2.00. 
One size fits 10-13.

Noh Troupe Received 
With Mixed Emotions 


The HoSho Noh Troup of actors from Tokyo brought the oldest 
theatre in the world to Shreveport October 3 on its first international 
tour and was received with mixed reacions. 

Before rhe opening curtain, the audience expressed excitement 
at being among the very few in the United States to see this classical 
troupe. However, their interest waned as the play progressed. 

Several reasons were expressed The music, also originating in the 

for this seemingly polite boredom; 
lack of understanding was the most 
prominent. The classical art form of 
the Noh was not explained— 4th 
century art forms are very different 
from ours. Perhaps, i f more of the 
audience had concentrated on the 
style and manner of presentation, 
they would have enjoyed it more. 
The movements of these actors 
were studied in precision, control, 
and grace. Every movement has 
been done since the 4th century 
and will continue through the ages. 
Their balance and timing were per- 
fect accompaniments to the stories. 

/•th century, was fascinating, even 
though monotonous and repetitous. 
Again, if was the form on which 
the audience should have concen- 

The general complaint of most 
Europeans concerning Americans is 
that they are too busy to enjoy life. 
They want everything done quickly 
and clearly. The reaction to the Noh 
drama seems to make this evident. 
Impatience with their precision and 
delicacy was clearly felt by both 
audience and actors. How unfortu- 
nate to further their cultural educa- 
tion. " 

The Choir "Loves" 
In First Of TV Shows 

The Centenary College Choir made its debut performance of 
the television season Wednesday night at 7 :50 p.m. The show, based 
on the theme "Song of Love', was inspired by a recent article in a prom- 
inent national magazine ng the lack of tender, romantic love 
songs in our modern world. The choir quickly repudiated this opinion 
as it preformed some of the most beautiful .nd popular love songs in 

The choir is beginning its thir- 
teenth season on television, and 
also its thirteenth year of sponsor- 
ship by Southwestern Electric Power 
Company. The relationship has been 
an enjoyable one for both parties. 
The shows this year are being taped 
and shown on KTBS-TV, Channel 3. 
They are also being re-broadcast 
by KSIA-TV, Channel 12. This 
double coverage should extend the 
range of the choir's publicity of 
Centenary College to a much larger 
area than ever before. 

As in all its activities, the choir 
strives through its television pro- 
grams to present entertainment of 
the highest caliber and to soread 
the name of Centenary 'College to 
as wide an area as possible.

Louisiana State Fair Expected to Draw 
Record Attendance During 61st Year 

This year, continuing its lengthy tradition, the Louisiana State 
Fair will headline Bob Hope. The dean of American comedians will 
take the road to Shreveport for five performances, October 21, 22 and 
23. The star of stage and screen, radio and books traveled over a mil- 
lion miles in entertaining servicemen during World War II, the Korean 
conflict and the fight in Viet Nam 
Hope will bring his troupe with 

him for three evening performances 
on Friday. Saturday and Sunday, and 
for Saturday and Sunday matinee 

Following closely behind Bob's 
three-day stint will be the Ice Ca- 
pades Lnternational show. The 
troupe's pageantry and skillful fig- 
ure skating will draw crowds to the 
Youth Center for five days. Wed- 
nesday through Sunday, October 26 
through 30. The Ice Capades have 
been a major attraction at the State 
Fair for the past seven years. Pop- 
ular demand draws the show back 
after year. 

The combination of Bob Hope and 
the Ice Capades, added to such reg- 
ular Fair features as the Royal Amer- 
ican Shows, the Louisiana Tech- 
Northwestern State College football 
gamegame, livestock exhibits, senior 
citizens exhibits and a number of 
completely new features is expected 
to help establish a record attendance 
at the 1966 State Fair. 

Regular visitors to the State Fair 
will find many physical improve- 
ments added to its facilities since 
last year. Totaling $167,000 during 
the past year, the improvements in- 
clude a new judging building locat- 
pH south of and adjacent to the 
cattle barn area. Costing $76,000 
it will be used for storage 11 
months of the year and for ciuarter 
horse and o'Her stock judging events

Kahlid Babaa Will Speak 
At Forums Tuesday Night 

When Khalid I. Babaa speaks on the subjeet "Arab National Neutralism" at the second Forum 
program at 7:30, Tuesday, October 25, it will be from 22 years of experience with the Arab government. 

1 960, he was in charge of the off- 

Babaa, who is Director of the 
League of Arab States, Information 
Center, for the Southwest, located in 
Dallas, Texas, began his training in 
the Middle East as an employee of 
the Government of Palestine under 
the British Mandate in 1944. In 
1949 he was appointed Chief Clerk 
of the Jordanian Ministry of the In- 
terior and held that post for four 

From 1945 to 1948, Babaa, who 
was born in Samaria, Palestine, in 
1924, studied law in Palestine and 
Jordan. Proceeding to the United 
States in 1952, he received his B.A.

Special Edition 

This is the first special edition of 
the CONGLOMERATE this year. It 
is special for two reasons (1) It con- 
tains subject matter importance, and 
(2) It is of such length and import- 
ance that it is intended to be kept 
and used as perhaps a future refer- 
ence. The subject matter: The Presi- 
dent's Conference. One of the main 
complaints of the past conferences 
was that what was said hardly filter- 
ed down from the higher; echeolon. 
This paper is devoted to trying to 
correct that situation. 

Although a taperecorder could 
not be used at the conference, Jim 
Montgomery served as special Con- 
glomerate Assistant and recorded 
the entire conference as accurately 
as possible. 

We have broken the conversation 
into particular topics thereby, hope- 
fully increasing reader interest. This 
should give a fair and detailed ac- 
count of what was said at the con- 
ference about each particular thing, 
however, one of the most important 
aspects of the conference was the 
general atmosphere, and you can 
get this fully only by reading if all. 
So read what you can now and 
save the paper so that you can fin- 
ish it later. 

"Sandburg" To Run

the University of Texas and pursued 
his studies of the Ph.D. Degree in 
international affairs and internation- 
al law at New York University and

Babaa is the author of the forth- 
coming book, "Positive Neutralism- 
Myth and Reality.', and has lectured 
before civic organizations in the 
United States and Canada. 

He is married to the former Betty 
Jean McLendon of Jacksonville, Tex. 
and they have two children. 

New Course To Be Taught 

Centenary students and faculty interested in the political structure 
of Louisiana will have the opportunity to take a special seven-week 
course on campus, beginning Tuesday, Oct. 25. 

Sponsored by the Shreveport Jay- 
cees, the course is entitled "The 
Realities of Louisiana Government 
and Politics." The instructor will be 
H. M. "Jerry" Doty, former legis- 
lative observer for the Shreveport 
Chamber of Commerce and holder 
of both elective and appointive po- 
sitions in state government. 

Class meetings will be held in 
Mickle Hall Auditorium (MH114) 
from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. every 
Tuesday evening. Tuition is $20, 
which includes all materials and re- 
freshments at each session. 

According to Gard Wayt, presi- 
dent of the Shreveport Jaycees, "Mr. 
Doty takes the puzzle many of us 
see in Louisiana Government and 
politics, dissassembles it into its 
various parts, and helps us put it 

back together with a new under- 

Wayt stressed that the course is 
strictly non-partisan, and that a 
handsome certificate suitable for 
framing is awarded to those com- 
pleting the seven weeks. 

The class sessions, which are 
supplemented with visual aids and 
periods for questions and answer, 
are broken down as follows: 

1 . The Geography, The People, 
and The Economy of Louisiana; 2. 
The Political History of Louisiana; 
3. The Constitution of Louisiana; 4. 
The Executive Branch; 5. The Legis- 
lative Branch, The Judicial Branch, 
and Local Government; 6. Govern- 
ment Regulation of Business in Lou- 
isiana; and 7. Recent Louisiana Elec- 
tions—Who Won and Why?

New Faces In Physics 

By Jerry Kilpatriclc 

Every year at Centenary we see a great many new faces, but we 
generally expect to see some of the old ones too. In the Physics Depart- 
ment, however, all of the faces are new. For most students it is easier 
to adjust to new faculty, and to work more closely with them, in and 
out of class, if they know something about them as individuals. 

One of the faces in Physics that is ma Ray Spechosiopy. Currently at 
not quite so new is that of Mr. John 
Williams. This is Mr. Williams' sec- 
ond year as a member of the mathe- 
matics faculty here, but he is new 
to the physics scene. He is teaching 
astronomy this year, and he is wel' 
qualified to do so. He did his under- 
graduate work at Centenary, receiv- 
ing a B.A. degree in math. While 
here he was very active at the Mar- 
jorie Lyons. From Centenary he went 
to the University of Texas, where he 
received a MS degree in Astronomy. 
He came back to Centenary as a 
members of the math faculty last 

The next of the new faces is 
like Mr. Williams, a "part-time" phys- 
ics teacher, and, like Mr. Williams, 
he is extremely well qualified for 
his position. He is Mr. Daniel Baker 
of United Gas Corp. Mr. Baker is 
teaching introductory physics and a 
senior mechanics course. He received 
his M.S. from Mississippi State Uni- 
versity. While at Mississippi State, 
he did research in the field of Gam- 

United Gas, he is involved in several 
aspects of lasser research. 

The new face that all of us are 
most familiar with, and that we will 
probably be seeing the longest is 
that of Dr. Louie Galloway. Dr. Gal- 
loway came here this year as Head 
of the Physics Department. He re- 
ceived his under graduate degree 
from Hendrix College in Conway, 
Arkansas. From Hendrix he went to 
Case Institute of Technology where 
he completed the work on his Ph.D. 
in physics last year. 

After receiving his M.S. in physics 
at Case, Dr. Galloway taught at the 
College of William and Mary. While 
at William and Mary, he acted as a 
consultant for NASA at Langley Field, 
Virginia. It was after this interim 
period of teaching that he returned 
to Case to finish his Ph.D. His re- 
search interest was in the area of 
total cross sections. While working 
on his Ph.Dd, Dr. Galloway made 
some 3,000 measurements, with 
better than one percent accuracy,

We do have new faces, and a new

ample of the overall continuing 
academic growth of our school. 

"Madamoiselle Lender" 

By Lucienne Bond 

Toulouse-Lautrec was greatly influenced by the vivid styles of 
Degas (a foremost impressionist) and Van Gogh. Of the greatest im- 
portance, however, was the mastery of line development by the Japanese 
printmakers. Coupled with the Toulouse-Lautrec's harsh tone, cold gaze 
and pitiless analysis, lithography (method of printing from a stone or 
metal plate) enabled him to achieve a complete composition with a few 
simple lines. 

Toulouse-Lautrec produced the first 
modern roster, in which he condens- 
ed objects by simplified areas of 
color, outlines, and scanty shading. 
These posters brought him immedi- 
ate success and recognition. The 
new technique of chromolithogra- 
phy, developed and perfected by 
Jules Cleret, enabled Toulouse-Laut- 
rec to print from several colored 

"Mademoiselle Lender" (given to 
the library by Dr. David Kimball in 
1961) is a fine colored lithograph 
which exemplifies the most out- 
standing characteristics of Toulouse- 
Lautrec. The lines are quick, and 
sweep upward. Although the wo- 
man's brows and lashes are a very 
vivid blue, and although her face 
is accented by a heavy red outline, 
she is quite attractive. She has huge 
nostrils, gritted teeth, a double chin, 
and furrowed brow; yet, she is very 
lively and stunning. The repetition 
of design on her dress and in the 

background contribute to the picture's 
unity. The signature of Toulouse 
Lautrec in the upper left-hand corn 
er is in itself a unique design. No 
tice that the H, T, and L are com 
bined in a circle and that the fina 
design resembles a Japanese letter 

Toulouse-Lautrec painted very few 
landscapes ("The vines don't interest 
me until the wine is in my glass"). 
Most of his paintings were rendered 
in oil on cardboard, the neutral tone 
of the board functioning as a pri- 
mary element in the design. Tou- 
louse-Lauterec was not interested in 
light as were the Impressionists, but 
only in form and movement. He as- 
sociated with no theories, and was 
a member of no artistic or aesthetic 
movement. The National Gallery in 
Washington, D.C., has the most no- 
table collection of his works in the 
United States. 

"Mademoiselle Lender" will be on 
special exhibit in the library.

Academics, Culture, Found Lacking; 
Would You Believe "Minor Issues"? 

The "meatiest" and most thought-provoking discussion held at the Conference was that concerned with 
the academic and cultural atmosphere on the Centenary campus. 

After having discussed various more concrete problems such as social regulations, etc., the conversa- 
tion switched to just how scholarly the atmosphere on campus was. It was weighed in the balance of candid 
discussion and "found wanting." 

Student Academic Life 

Joe Loupe: What about student 
culture and academic life? 

Dr. Wilkes: We determines whe- 
ther students are involved in aca- 
demic life? Total student culture. 

Will Finnin: We should expose 
students to religious, moral and po- 
litical views they would not ordi- 
narily hear. 

Lou Popejoy: The Conglomerate 
should help involve students in aca- 
demic life. 

Dr. Morgan: I think the class- 
room is the place. 

Dr. Wilkes: Isn't this like going 
to church? Students are academic- 
ally pious in class. 

Mike Little: There's too little study- 
ing in the library. 

Dr. Carlton: A student senate 
which can handle a $25,000 budget 
should be able to keep a library 

Dr. Wilkes: Are there students 
who feel that learning is the academ- 
ic life? 

David Hoskins: Yes, but I don't 
know how IN we are. We talk more 
about sex than professors. 

Lou Popejoy: The atmosphere is 
not predominate enough. 

Dr. Wilkes: We want this to be a 
fine academic institution, but we 
must have students who go along 
with this. 

Jos Loupe: How about something 
on the par of Great Issues for fresh- 
men and sophomores, perhaps "Min- 
or Issues." 

Lou Popejoy: Many students come 
hire with academic excellence in 
What we have to do is 
continue programs of high calibre. 

Dick Grisham. Many have been 
frustrated in their attempts for aca- 
demic excellence. 

Miss Alexander: Academics must 
come first. Social and extracurricular 

Lucienne Bond- Students are afraid 
of grades. 

Dean Marsh: "The great cash ac- 
count stystem of American educa- 
tion" where you go through a course 
and collect green stamps, then turn 
in your book to the registrar and 
get a degree. I don't like grades. 
I want another system to free us 
from the tyranny of the grade book. 
To get rid of educational gimmickery. 
The degree must be evaluated, of 
course, but not in bits and pieces. 

Joe Loupe: We like to be chal- 

Dr. Wilkes: Isn't it possible for 
students to challenge teachers? 

Joe Loupe: It can't be a one-way 
deal. It has to be from both sides. 

Dick Grisham: True, there are two 
challenging bodies— grades are hin- 
dering both groups. Some kind of 
change must be made in the system, 
for it defeats most people. 

David Hoskins: What we have now 
is one-sided. I don't want to re- 
verse it, I just want balance. 

Dr. pate: If you rebel too much 
against a system, you forget what 
you're here for. 

Dr. Lowery: Even though the 
grades may be low, it doesn't mean 
we think you're an inferior student. 
We can recommend you above a 

Dean Forest: We need to de- 
emphasize social activities and bring 
in courses, for example, on how to 
study . Faculty should be more 
thoroughly involved — perhaps we 
could arrange dessert suppers in 
faculty homes. If orientation and 
rush were integrated, it might work 
out to academic daytime sessions 
and social evenings. 

Lucienne Bond: At S.M.U. pre- 
college literature was recommended 
as reading for incoming freshmen. 
When orientation started, discussion 
groups were held. 

David Hoskins: There is a basic 
feeling that we must do something 
constructive besides that within the 
academic circle. Yet all we have for 
a criteria are grades. What kind of 
exchange can we have? 

Alton McKnight: What do you 
want from college?— only what you 
desire or a liberal arts education? 

Dick Grisham: What about the 
admissions policies? 

Dean Forrest: The freshmen this 
year had a grade point average of 
2.6. Thirty-five percent were above 
a 3.0, and nine percent below a 2.0. 
Their average admission test score 
was 952-8% were above 1200, 
and 9% were below 800. Fifty-eight 
percent of the freshmen are from 
Louisiana, and thirty-five percent 
are Methodists. 

Dean Marsh: The faculty commit- 
tee on admissions has set up tenta- 
tive criteria for future admissions. 
No scores under 850 will be admit- 
ted without special consideration. 
I've suggested to the Director of 
Admissions to aim for twice the 
number of applications to select from. 

Paula Marshall: How many were 
admitted on probation? 

Dr. Wilkes 6.5% of freshmen 

and transfers. 

Dr. Pate: Couldn't we announce a 
cut-off date for admissions? 
Dr. Wilkes: We'd like to try. 
Ellen Victory: I'd like to see 
students added to the recruiting trips 
Dr. Wilkes: Me too, especially 
when we branch out this year in 
Birmingham, Atlanta, and Mobile. 

Lary Liles: The Northern students 
say they come here because they 
can't get in anywhere else. 

Dr. Wilkes: That's correct, be- 
cause northeastern colleges only 
accept one out of nine applicants. 

Alton McKnight: Aren't we more 
interested in quantity rather than 
quality 7 

Bob Durand: Now that the ad- 
missions program is operating, qual- 
ity is more important. 

Dick Grisham: Couldn't we dis- 
cuss scholarships? The value of 
athletic scholarships is half as much 
as academic scholarships to 1/10 as 
many people. 

Dean Forest: Should we buy 


Dick Gresham: Yes. 

Janelle McCammon: The whole 
point is what we want is an atmos- 
phere for scholars. Scholars cost 
money just like basketball players. 

Miss Alexander: A college is 
judged by the product it produces. 
Scholarships aimed at pure scholars 
can be given in addition to need. 
We need a change in attitude con- 
cernings cholarships. 

Dick Grisham: Our scolarship 
program is rub-par. We need more 
scholastic emphasis. 

Dr Carlton: Right. 

Dr Morgan: Right. 

Dr. Lowrey: We're going to have 
to give them more than free tuition. 

Buzz Delaney: To get these epople 
we could give $2,000 to 2% of the 
incoming freshmen — a $8,0040 
package I think we could handle it. 

Dr. Wilkes: Do we want students 
on the financial aid committee? 

Lou Popejoy: Yes! 

Dr. Wilkes: Right.

and Social Regulations 

Dorm Rules Discussed 

Liberalization of rules for junior and senior women of high aca- 
demic standing and open houses for boys' and girls' dorm received con- 
siderable support. Already several open houses days have been scheduled, 
and the AWS is considering dorm privileges for uppenclassmen. 

The discussion on social regulations centered on dorm rules, 
especially the inequality of men's and women's regulations. Restrictive 
dorm policies for women students were called "archaic" by several par- 
ticipants, while others defended them as necessary. 

Alton McKnight: Let's talk about 
the program for junior and senior 

Ellen Victory: (Describes system 
of Stetson College in Florida where 
upperclassmen are given keys to the 
dorms and allowed to return when 
they wish). 

Dick Grisham: Let the AWS con- 
sider it. 

Patty Burnap: The AWS is con- 

Ellen Victory: The AWS is not 
archaic We might liberalize; we 
might not. 

David Hoskins: How about coord- 
inating AWS and the senate? 
Dick Grisham: Not yet, but we're 
working on it. 

Maureen Buckley: How about 
open houses in both boys' and girls' 
dorms— one every two week, alter- 

Dr. Wilkes: If you come to my 
house, you're not coming into my 

Dr. Carlton: SGA should not be 
given power it doesn't ask for. 

David Hoskins: We asked for con- 
trol of dorm regulations, a say in 
curricula, retention or firing of teacrr- 
ers and a say on tenure. We realize 
the educational limitation, but we 
want a voice in academic life and 
full power in social life. 

Mike Little: We really have all the 
power. If there were no students 
there would be no college. 

Alton McKnight: Social rules are 
not within the realm of student 
responsibility; too many people to 
answer to— parents, trustees, public 

Dave Hoskins: The social rules are 
archaic. No one except the students 
are involved in dorm life, and stu- 
dents are the only ones who know 
about the effect of dorm hours and 

Janelle McCammon: One of the 
purposes of the college is "to prepare 
the student for service." Yet stu- 
dents are denied responsibility of 
regulating the dorms. They need 
greater freedom. 

David Hoskins: There is a grave 
inequality between men's and wom- 
en's rules. It is more difficult for 
women to achieve. 

Dean Rawlinson: Achieve what? 
Masterful statement of ambiguity. 

David Hoskins: They can do it 
before 10:30. 

Patty Burnap: I like the rules. I 
don't think women are unfairly dealt 

Dick Grisham: Junior and senior 
women who are capable of more 
should have more liberalized rules. 
Dr. Carlton: I don't think academ- 
ic excellence is related to dorm

Students, Faculty Discuss Cirricula; 
Dead Week, Final Exams, Honor Code 

One of the topics discussed to great length during the Conference was hte curricuea. One aspect of 
this discussion which received perhaps the most enthusiastic and constructive attention was Dead Week 
and the present final examination program. All students present, expressed a concern for not only the rushed 
schedule of finals, but also the 'piling on" with tests and papers due the last week before finals making 
the end of the semester "pure hell".

of the pressure which they must 

Working at present on this par- 
ticular problem — along with other 
problems of curricula, such as a

tees. If you are interested on being

Honor Extension and Dead Week 

Lou Popejoy: What about Dead 
Week? No tests during the week be- 
fore finals. 

Dr. Warters: The faculty didn't 
even know what Dead Week was. 
Poor communications. 

Mike Little: If teachers take a 
pledge not to give tests . . . 

Dr. Pate: On my sacred honor . . 

Roy Stringfellow: Couldn't we 
spread finals over a longer period 
of time? 

Dr. Wilkes: O.K. 

Dr. Pate: What's O.K.? 

Dr. Wilkes: I don't know. 

Roy Stringfellow: What about tak- 
ing finals under the honor system? 
Any time during the exam week a 
student would pick up his exam, 
take it, and turn it in. 

Alton McKnighl: I think this would 
be extending the honor system too 

Lou Popejoy: I think it would 

Dick Grisham: Perhaps try it this 
semester with the senior class. If 
it's going to work, it will work 

Dean Marsh: Haverford has a sim- 
ilar system and is very pleased with 
it, although they too had appre- 
hensions at first. 

Roy Stringfellow: We would per- 
haps set a time limit on the tests. 
I think a student realizing the trust 
put on him would feel obligated to 
adhere to the honor system. 

Dr. Wilkes: The curriculum com- 
mittee will investigate.

Maresh Crowned Miss Centenary; 
Nichols Is First Runner-Up 

Miss Cheryl Lynn Maresh was crowned the new Miss Centenary for the year 1966-67 at the Miss 
Centenary pageant in the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse Friday Night, October 14. Miss Maresh was crowned 
queen after a very competitive two day contest involving some 26 contestants. The attractive and talented 
brunette also won the indviidual awards for evening gown and talent competition. 

The Miss Centenay contest this The five finalists in the contest Cheryl is a member of the Centen- 

year involved competition in evening were: Mary Frances Backstrom, fourth ary Choir and has had four years 

gown, talent, and, for the first time, 
swim-suit divisions. On Thursday, 
the first talent and evening gown 
competition was held. On Friday af- 
ternoon, the memoranda featured a 
tea at the home of Mrs. Fannie 
Nichols for the contestants and the 
swim-suit competition. On Friday 
night came the main event which 
involved the ten finalists. 

The ten finalists were: Suzetfe 
DeWese, Cheryl Maresh, Kathryn 
Koelemay, Mollie Richey, Katherine 
Galloway, Diane Masse, Psjla Boyd, 
Mary Frances Backstrom, Patricia 
Verlander and Nancy Nichols. These 
ten girls were announced Friday 
night and presented tlieir talent and

for the judges.

up; Nancy Nichols, first runner-up 
(winner Miss Congeniality); and

Miss Maresh is a music major and 
has attended Centenary for a year 
after attending North Texas State 
University. The nineteen year old 
brunette stands 5'6" and weighs 
120 pounds. She is from Dainger- 
field, Texas, and graduated from high 
school there. Her mother and family 
live there presently. She had the 
honor of reigning as Miss Dainger- 
field, 1965, and was third runner-up

of voice training and one year of 
dramatics. For her talent in the Miss 
Centenary pageant, Miss Maresh sang 
a medley. Selections from "The 
Sound of Music," "Hello, Dolly," 
and "People" gave her the best tal- 
ent in the eyes of the judges and 
helped tremendously to give her 
the title of Miss Centenary. 

In an interview after the pageant, 
Cheryl said that she had had no idea 
of winning. But when she did, one 
of her first thoughts was of her wish 
"to be a true Centenary lady." She 
feels that she can fulfill this wish 
now. When asked of any immediate 
plans for the future, she expressed 
her desire "to be the best queen 

Jim Montgomery, chairman of the 
pageant, was very pleased with the 
contest. In his own words, "It was 
one of the smoothest pageants I 
have ever worked with." Montgom- 
ery highly praised Charles Park and 
Tarol Thomas, the M.C.'s, and Mrs. 
: annie Nichols for their tremendous 
>fforts on the contest. 

Montgomery also expressed thanks 
ind praise for the work of John 
Williams, the stage manager. Due 
*o the quality of the performers and 
to the smoothness with which the 
sageant progressed, Montgomery 
believed that this year's talent was 
superior to any of past years. In his 
words, Montgomery couldn't say 
enough for the girl's. "They were so 
quiet and attentive, and they listen- 
ed and performed so well." 

Mrs. Maresh was present to see 
her daughter win, and Cheryl stated 
that her interest in the music which 
served her so well was largely due 
to her mother. Cheryl comes from a 
femily of four. Perhaps the outcome 
of the Miss Centenary pageant was 
best expressed in the words of the 
new Miss Centenary after the contest, 
when she said, "It's wonderful."

SGA Committees Listed; Begin Future Plans 

Be The Busiest Committees In The Coming Semester 

Various committees of the student senate are planning future activities and programs. At last week's 
senate meeting, Paula Marshall and Chris Barnette, chairmen of the entertainment committee, announced 
that their committee is working on plans for scheduling movies, dances and a special program. The fol- 
lowing movies have been tenatively scheduled: 

NEW SENATORS — The two recently elected Frosh Senators are 
Jane Kizer (Dallas, Tex.) and Steve Mayer (Bunkie, La.). 

Freshmen Vote 
And Elect New 
Senate Members 

Janie Kner and Steve Mjyer 
were elected to the position of 
Freshman Senator in elections held 
on campus last week. 

Janie, an Art major from Dallas, 
and Steve, a History major from 
Bunkie, were officially welcomed to 
their first Student Senate meeting 
held Tuesday night. 

The relatively quiet campaign af- 

cted only 300 of the 435 Fresh- 
men to the polls on the first bal- 
lot. Only 225 students cast ballots 
in the runoff. 

Steve defeated the other male 
candidates. Bill Garfield and Tom 
Stone, on the first ballot. After the 
elimination of Terri Ebel, Janie de- 
feated Paua Boyd in a hard fought 
second primary. 

Janie, wno is a pledge of Zeta 
Tua Alpha, was a contestant in the 
Miss Centenary pageant. Her 'n- 
terests include music and clubwork. 
She is a graduate of Thomas Jef- 
fprcon Hiqh School. 

Active in speech and student gov- 
er"ment work in Bunkie High School 
St»we ; s a oledge of Kappa Sigma. 

Both Janie and Steve are excited 
with the prospects for Student Gov- 
ernment here at Centenary. Each of 
thom admits that they have never 
'e°r\ or participated on a Student 
Government as active and powerful 
<"s the one at Centenary. Beth ex- 
pressed their thanks for the suponrt 
given them 

Their first job will be in assisting 
in plans for the Freshman segment 
of the all-cimpus talent show to be 
helH in January. Thev will also in- 
"estioate the possibilities for a Sen- 
ate-sponsored trip during the se- 
mester break. 



In response to student requests, 
the Library will experiment with 
midnight closing hours between 
October 30 and November 12. 
The building will be open for stu- 
dent and faculty use until mid- 
night, Sunday through Thursday, 
and until 8:00 p.m. on Friday, 
for a two week experimental per- 
iod. Women students who live on 
campus will be granted late per- 
mission to go to the Library. 

The Libr.iry will, as in the past, 
remain open until 5:00 p.m. on 
Saturday. Opening hours will con- 
tinue to be 8:00 a.m. on week- 
days, 9:00 a.m. on Saturday and 
200 p.m. on Sunday. Future lib- 
brary hours will be determined 
by the extent to which students 
take advantage of the experiment- 
al late closing hours. 


This Thursday 

The President's Convocation, sche- 
duled for 10:30 a.m. Thursday, 
Nov. 3, will be the setting for a 
statement concerning the life of the 
college as it is related to the pur- 
poses of the college, according to 
President Jack S. Wilkes. 

The Convocation will begin with 
a formal procession of the faculty 
and graduating seniors. The college 
band will accompany the procession. 

In addition to the President's 
speech, there will be a special rec- 
ognition ceremony for the oldest 
living alumnus of the college. 

Students are reminded that fail- 
ure to attend an all-colleoe convo- 
cation will result in an "F" grade 
in Chapel.

Academic Excellence - 
Semester Interim Program 

The Student Senate Curriculum Committee has been actively 
formulating ideas for possible changes in the semester schedule, dead 
week, and final exam week. The main concern of the committee has 
been the possible establishment of an interim program during the month 
of January. 

On November 3, at the campus wide President's Convocation, a 
questionnaire will be handed out to all students in an attempt to discover 
if Centenary students are in favor of Semester Interim Program. 

This program would be held during the period between Christmas 
and the second semester which would start at the regular time. It would 
be an optional program open to all students not on probation, with the 
aim of offering enrichment courses and learning experiences not normally 
extended to Centeary studets. Although nothing has yet been officially 
approved, the Dean of the College has given the committee a general 
nod of approval to begin making definite plans once the general desire 
of the student body has been ascertained. 

Possible courses include field trips to Mexico with the language 
department, to Florida with the Biology department, to New York with 
the art department. The idea of a supervised trip to Europe has been 
considered and received much enthusiastic, if premature, acceptance. 
In addition to these trips, consideration is being given to inviting well 
known lecturers to Centenary during this rime to teach intensive seminar 
programs. Centenary professors might also teach enrichment courses 
that are not ordinarilv extended during the regular year. The list of 
possible courses is wide and exciting. 

It, of course, will take much time and calculation to put this pro- 
gram into effect, the calendar will demand rearrangement, finances 
must be considered, professors must be contacted, the grading system 
will have to be settled (probably on a credit basis of pass or fail). 
The point is that the Curriculum Committee must first know if the 
student body wants a challenging program of this type, if the average 
Centenary student is actually interested in improving the general academic 
atmosphere on campus, and if he is ready to improve himself and 
broaden his education in a true and exciring sense of the word. 

The choice will be yours. Vote against Semester Interim program 
and you are satisfied with the status quo. Vote yes and you take the 
chance of participating in a program where learning is a challenge 
and a blast, where the rat race grade point system is replaced by interest 
and stimulation, where you finally participate in a learning situation 
in the truest sense of the word. 

Vote for academic excellence — vote in favor of the Semester 
Interim Program.

Ballet Presented 
Tuesday Night 

Centenary students and all Shreve- 
porters will have an opportunity to 
witness the Ballet Folklorio of 
Mexico, a production directed by 
Amalia Hernandez, on Tuesday, No- 
vember 1, at 8:15 p.m. in the 
Shreveport Civic Theater. 

This colorful presentation of Mex- 
ican culture and folklore has been 
enthusiastically received in this 
country since its U. S. debut in 
1962. The music for the production 
comes from Mexican history and 
tradition. The company includes 75 
gifted dancers and musicians from 
all parts of Mexico. 

Tickets for the performance may 
be reserved in the Washington-You- 
ree Hotel Lobby Arcade or by writ- 
ing Box 731, Shreveport. Prices, in- 
cluding tax, are: orchestra, first half, 
$6.50; orchestra, second half, $5.75, 
mezanine. $5.50, and balcony seats, 
$3 75. No student rates will be 

Some Spanish students have ex- 
pressed a desire to attend as a 
group. This will not make student 
rates available, but it may be pos- 
sible to reserve seats together and 
enjoy the production as a group. 
If you are interested in this idea, 
contact Senor Antonio Cunbelo as 
soon as possible. 

"Fables of La Fontaine" 

By Lucienne Bond 

Marc Chagall ( 1 887— ) is a Russian Jew who went to Paris 
in 1910 to seek the artistic training that he could not find in Russia. 
In Pans he was greatly influenced by Cubism ( the sryle of composition 
characterized by cubes or squared effects). He returned to Moscow in 
1919 where he was commissioned to execute the murals for the Jewish 
State Theatre. Some of his greatest works and achievements include - 
illustrations for Gogol's Dead Souls (1923), illustrations for the Fables 
of la Fontaine (1925-1926), the first New York City one-man show at 
Reinhardt Galleries (1926), the scenery and costume designs for Stra- 
vinsky's "Firebird" (1945), and, most recently, two 36' by 30' murals 
in the new Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. 

Chagall's style is highly imagina- and flowers, 
five. With sweeping strokes of sud- 
den impulse he achieves exciting 
movement. His rich usage of color 
is as refreshing as his placement of 
recognizable objects i n unusual, 
floating positions. Chagall cherishes 
the memories of his childhood in 
Russia and poetically communicates 
this love in his paintings. In ad- 
dition to his poetic evocations of 
Russian village life, he delights in 
painting religious themes, lovers, 

The engraving in the library 
"Fables de Jean de la Fontaine", 
was a gift of Dr. David Kimball in 
1966. The lack of color deprives ,l ic- 
onlooker of experiencing Chagall's 
typical exquisite use of color; how- 
ever, the graceful, delicate stroke; 
in the birds are typical of his work. 

"Fables de Jean de la Fontaine" 
will be on special exhibit in the 
Library throughout the week.

LIVING CHRISTMAS TREE — Centenary student, Brenda Slusher, 
displays some of her distinctive personal jewelry. 

Business Is Just A Bowl 
Of Dice, Ping Pong Balls 

By Lynn Levisay 
What began as a hobby may well become a career for Brenda 
Slusher, a sophomore at Centenary from Pineville, Kentucky. This 
past summer Brenda began making unusual pop art jewelry for herself. 
When her friends began buying, and her friend': friends began ordering, 
business boomed. Brenda had a made-to-order summer job. 

This "unusual" jewelry is made have shown an interest in carrying 

from such materials as pingpong 
balls, coal, bubble gum, dominoes, 
jacks, curtain hooks, and dice. Tools 
for making pop art jewelry are large- 
ly makeshift — hat pins, modeling 
clay, and bent hangers. 

The idea for these types of pop 
art jewelry came this past summer 
because Brenda thought it would bs 
a relief from the then-popular heavy 
papier mache jewelry. With the ex- 
ception of special jewelry equipment 
from a supply house, and the dice 
and dominoes from a specialty house 
where her father buys itmes for his 
magic shows, she has found her 
supplies in pineville 

The jewelry prices range from $1 
to $3.50. It is sold now in Pineville, 
Middlesboro, Knoxville, Indianapolis, 
Murray, Ky., Cumberland Falls State 
Park, Ft Myers, and Sarsota, Fla. 
The jewelry appeals mainly to col- 
lege and high school students, but is 
also worn by some older women. 

Brenda's father is Preston Slusher, 
general manager of "The Book of 
Job" in the summer and a touring 
magician in. the winter. Brenda her- 
self worked with public relations 
for Job this summer. She said that 
she got nunv of her jewelry ideas, 
along with advice on types of psint, 
lacauer, and chemicals to use to 
make the jewelry's finish permanent, 
from Irene Corey, designer of Job 
This summer the jewelry sold well 
at "The Book of Job" office and 
souvenir stand 

Several places here in Shreveport 

her line of jewelry. Items will be 
on sale in various shops and stores 
in Shreveport within the next month 
or so. 

Now Brenda is working on de- 
signs for other boutique items in- 
cluding sportswear, handbags, and 
other jewelry designs. She is also 
considering a line of sportswear to 
be sold exclusively in Florida.

Curriculum Committee Working 
On Schedule, Dead Week Finals 

By Carol White 

The Student Senate Curriculum Committee has been actively 
formulating ideas for possible changes in the semester schedule, dead 
week and final exam week. The main concern of the committee has 
been the possible establishment of an interim program during the month 
of January. 

A program of this type would 
offer field trips, individual project 
studies, and certain specialized 
courses not included in the regular 
schedule. If this program were ap- 
proved it would mean a change in 
the present schedule. Classes would 
begin September 5 and rush the 
week before. The same schedule of 
Thanksgiving holidays would be fol- 
lowed and the first semester would 
end on December 22. Students would 
have a choice of participating in the 
interim program from January 8— 
January 27. It would not be manda- 
tory. Second semester classes would 
begin February 5 and would allow 
for a longer Spring vacation. Final 
examinations would end May 31. 

Dean Forrest has suggested further 
that during the interim period pro- 
fsssors might be brought in from 
other colleges which also have such 
a program. Students might also 
participate in 21 -day European tours 

or seminars in Washington. The pos- 
sibility of having visiting privileges 
at the library of a major university 
while writing a paper was also 

Other questions which the Curric- 
ulum Committee has considered are 
extending the final exam period to 
cover six days and instituting a 
program of honors' exams whereby 
Seniors would take their finals at 
any time they wished during their 
examination period. This would be 
a test of honor exams. It has been 
proposed to alleviate the problem 
of having several exams scheduled 
for one day. 

At the President's Convocation on 
November 3, the student body will 
receive questionnaires concerning 
the work of the Curriculum Com- 
mittee. Before that time students are 
asked to consider especially their 
views on the interim program and 
a possible change in the school

Theater , ♦ ♦ Bridge Between 
Scientific Thinking, Religion 

Ted Baxter 

Theatre might be che bridge between scientific thinking and 
religion, according to Mrs. Kay Baxter, noted British educator and the 
first of the Forums speakers for the semester. Mrs. Baxter, who spoke at 
4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20 at the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse, said theatre 
has "the freedom of verbalizing our communication through the reflective 
speech, the soliloquy . . ." 
Speaking on the topic "Man Alone: 
The Soliloquy in Contemporary Dra- 
matic Literature," Mrs. Baxter said 
all drama is closely mashed with 
the scientific thinking of the age, 
though the language of drama never 
becomes the same as that of science 
or religion. The camps, she observ- 
ed, are not isolated. 

The best experimenter with the 
problems of communication, Mrs. 
Baxter claimed, is lonesco. In his 
play Jack or Submission, Jack is 
told by three different people that 
his grandfather has died, but he 
fails to comprehend. Only after he 
begins to sob does he grasp what 
has happened. This illustrates, Mrs. 
Baxter declared, that man must act 
in order to understand. 

lonesco shows us isolated, trying 
to communicate. When one cannot 
communicate, he begins to hate. 
Violence takes over. Mrs. Baxter 
concluded by stating that the sin 
of self hate is lifted by a direct 
confrontation between man and him- 
self. Through the dramatic solilo- 
quy, there is a growing movement 
in theatre, she said to show what 
can be attained from love. 

In the question-and-answer ses- 
sion, Mrs. Baxter was asked for a 
comment on the theme and theology 
of Edward Albee's controversial 
plav, Tinv Alice. She replied that 
in this play a man has come out of 
a closed community, is thrown into 
th=it reality and illusion cannot be 
seoarated. Theatrically, she said, it 
is a failure because it is too un- 
realistic for a man, dying from a 

bullet wound, to discuss reality. 

Mrs. Baxter answered affirmative- 
ly when asked if modern play- 
wrights, Albee in particular, are 
saying that even through communi- 
cations have broken down, efforts 
to communicate should persist. 

In reply to a question on how the 
church can relate its message to 
today's man, Mrs. Baxter said that 
theater is the art which may break 
the word barrier. She thought that 
the real depth and power of Christ- 
ian sympols have disappeared in 
our age, and new symbols must be 

Reading Group Will

The topic for the first 1966 6 7

Name, by James Baldwin. Discus- 
sion leaders will be Dr. Earle Labor 
and Richard Grisham. Other re-

Limited membership of the group, 
sixteen, will provide ample oppor- 
tunity for discussion, according to 
Gaylon Daigle, president of Alpha

held in Jackson Hall 22A. 

Donna Shults, T.W.U., asks 

'Can you face up to a close up?" 

Clean, clear complexion can stand any 
close up test. Medicated OJ's Beauty Lo- 
tion really cleans and clears re- 
freshes, too. It's the best close up treat 
you can give your skin because it works 
three ways: as an effective cleanser, a 
refreshing astringent, and a medicated aid 
in the treatment of acne pimples. 

For close up beauty, try OJ's! 


Van Cliburn 

Cliburn Maintains 
His Artistic Appeal 

By Patti Andress 

Van Cliburn, internationally-famous 
concert pianist and native Shreve- 
porter, appeared as guest soloi»t 
with the Shreveport Symphony on 
the opening concert of their 19th 
season last Friday and Saturday 
nights. He chose to play the Tchai- 
kovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 in B 
flat minor with which he won the 
Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow 
in the spring of 1958. Winning a 
Russian competition at that time in- 
sured instant fame in a world that 
had just learned to respect and ap- 
preciate Russian opinion and ap- 
plause, and his fine pianism has 
earned him further success since 
then. His extreme familiarity with 
the Tchaikovsky Concerto made it 
doubly easy to demonstrate the 
warmth and over-all command of the 
oiano that his audiences have come 
to expect. No one who braved the 
crowd to hear Mr. Cliburn live up 
to his reputation was disappointed. 

The Shreveport Symphony played 
its subordinate part in the piano 
concerto nicely and used the first 
half of the program to show off its 
greatly impoved string section. This 
orchestra's progress will be made 3 
great deal easier in the future be- 
cause of its recently earned Ford 
Foundation grant and status of 
Metropolitan Orchestra. Anyone who 
wishes to hesr a live orchestra per- 
form should take advantage of his 
opportunity to hear Shreveport's.

SAUL ALINSKY, Next Forum Speaker, 
Said To "Thrive On Social Strife" 

Saul Alinsky, well-known Chicago sociologist, will be the third 
Forums speaker of the semester when he speaks on the topic "The 
Social Revolution of Ametica's Poor" on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Mr. Alinsky 's 
lecture will concern the involvement of the urban poor in the War on 

A graduate of the University of 
Chicago, Mr. Alinsky is the author 
of numerous articles contributed to 
periodicals. He has written two 
books— Reveille for Radicals (1946), 
and John L. Lewis, A Biography 

(1949). Some of the organizations 
in which he holds membership are 
The Authors League of America, the 
American Sociological Society, and 
the American Prison Association. 

An Editorial Concerning Mr. Alinsky 

By William F. Buckner, Jr., Noted New York Conservative 

Mr. Saul Alinsky of Chicago is 
becoming very fashionable, indeed 
churches and civic groups are vying 
for his favors, and he may be pop- 
ping up any one of these days in 
your town. F or a fee, Mr. Alinsky 
contracts to come into your city and, 
so to speak, bust up the joint. 

Mr. Alinsky is twice formidable. 
For one thing, he is very close to 
being an organizational genius. For 
another, Alinsky has a way of mak- 
ing practical idealists feel sort of 
foolish— by brushing aside their ef- 
forts to help the poor or the racial 
minorities as ventures in futility. Mr. 
Sargant Shriver he dismissed as a 
hypocrite, a "political pornograph- 
er." In Rochester, New York, the 
leaders of the city fancy themselves 
as most admirably progressive, and 
yet Alinsky has calmly denounced 
them for having "transported a 
Southern plantation up to the 

Alinsky cannot abide men ot rea- 
son or conciliation. He thrives on 
strife, the more the better, and es- 
pecially relishes the opposition when 
it is tough. Add to all of this a pene- 
trating sense of irony. "An integrat- 
ed neighborhood," he once observ- 
ed, "is defined as the length of 
time between the arrival there of 
the first Negro, and the departure 
of the last white." 

In Chicago, Alinsky has been 
very active since 1960, in the so- 
called Woodlawn project which took 
on the mayor, the newspapers, and 
the University of Chicago. There 
Alinsky's tactics became famous — 
among them the dispatching of sit- 
ins to City Hall or anywhere else 
where the administrative congestion 
was likely to be tight. Mostly he 
likes to deploy ministers and priests,

groes, and the militants elected as 
their leader an ordained gentleman 
who refers to himself as "Minister 
Florence." Minister Florence and his 
associates are separatist-oriented. In- 
deed, the Minister himself wears a 
Black Power button, and volubly ad- 
mires the late racist, Malcolm X— 
and clearly resent their dependence 
on Mr. Alinsky and all other white 

In this sense he is a good disciple 
of Mr. Alinsky, who specializes in 
doubting the motives of anyone who 
disdains the revolutionary approach 
to social reform. It is sometimes 
difficult to understand why Mr. Alin- 
sky fights to remove human beings 
from slums, since it is so very 
clear that his hatred for the slums 
is exceeded only by his hatred for 
those who have moved out of them. 
There are those in Rochester who 
wonder despairingly how one can 
work one's way into Mr. Alinsky's 
affections these days, except by go- 
ing to live in the soualor from which 
he is ostensibly engaged in liberat- 
ing them? 

We were all of us, everyone in 
America, poor at one time— in some 
cases at times remote, to be sure; 
at some point back it was true even 
of the forefathers of Nelson Rocke- 
feller. The point, surely, in Rocke- 
feller and elsewhere, is to ease the 
way out of the slums; and the way 
to do that surely is not to overturn 
the order by which the overwhelm- 
ing majority of Americans rose up 
out of poverty. 

Mr. Alinsky takes the iconoclast's 
pleasure in kicking the biggest be- 
hinds in town, and the sport is not 
untempting; but when it becomes 
the passion of a whole society it 
must invoke, as the Jacobins invok- 
ed in Edmund Burke, the condemna- 
tion of all serious men. Already Mr. 
Alinsky's deputy in Rochester has 
put a genocidal edge upon his rheto- 
ric, as though the hatred that has 
done so much misery to his own 
people should serve now as the 
key to their emancipation. 

Minister Florence has a great deal 
to learn, and the question of course 
is how high a price will the decent 
people of Rochester, white and 
black, need to pay to finance his 
moral education. And the larger 
"uestion is: when will the greater 
community force its thinking through 
on Saul Alinsky, sufficient to ask 
whether the end justifies any means, 
and whether the progress and good 
feeling they seek are likelv to be 
induced bv all totalist tacts of a man 
of anarchist bent.

This year's freshman basketball team under the guidance of Coach 
Larry (Papa Shoe) Shoerraker will field one of the tallest aggregations 
of roundballers seen on Centenary's campus in several years. 

The freshmen, in fact, will be taller than the varsity Gents which 
should prove very interesting when the VarsityPFrosh game rolls around 
Nov. 21. Included in the Gentlet schedule are games with several strong 
independent teams, arch-rivals La. Tech and Norrhwestern, and perennial 
junior college power Kilgore Junior College.

The Gents are going to be a little 
short this year. In fact, they will 
only average about 6'1" or 6'2". 
In discussing this years team, Coach 
Sigler said that this could be th2 
shortest team in the history of Cen- 
tenary. Because of this problem of 
size, rebounding is going to be a 
problem. The Gents will have to 
get to the boards fast. If they don't 
it could be all over. 

This is going to have to be a 
year of defense— good defense. 
Pressure defense is the answer ac- 
cording to Coach Sigler. The Gents 
must force their opposition to make 
mistakes and then take advantage 
of them. With the Gents now going 
into their second full week of prac- 
tice, defense is already being stress- 
ed heavily. 

The '66 season is one of rebuild- 
ing with only two lettermen re- 
turning from last year's team. At 
this time, it is a tossup as to who 
will start. As Coach Sigler said, "I 
just don't know. Right now we are 
just looking to see what we have." 

The picture for the Gents is not 
as dark as it may seem UCLA 
didn't do too bad not long ago 
with a team that was not much 
taller than the Gents, but don't 
take this as a prediction. One thing 

is for sure, the Gents are going to 
have to run and anytime a team 
runs, there is action, and Coach 
Sigler has promised us some action.

Vannie Edwards Enthused About Team 
After Lecturing Series In Europe 

If Vannie Edwards, Centenary's gymnastic coach, was not 
"fired up" over the 1966-67 season for the women's gymnastic team in 
August, he certainly is now. For Edwards has just returned from a tour 
of Europe where he participated in a lecture and demonstration series 
and saw gymnasts compete in the 1966 U. S. World Games. 

The series under which Edwards ed three places since 1964 when 
lectured was sponsored by the 
American Soorts Foundation and in- 
included 1 1 sessions. Beginning in 
London on September 7, Edwards 
went to France, Switzerland, Bel- 
gium and finally Dusseldorf, Germ- 
any. The most interesting lecture, 
according to Edwards, was at the 
Royal French Military Academy in 
Paris where it was necessary to 
translate the text into three lang- 
uages for over 3,000 persons were 

After the series, Edwards went 
to Dortmund, Germany, where he 
was on the coaching staff of the 
1966 U. S. World Games Team. 
Winning sixth place in the match out 
of 38 naions competing, the U. S. 
Team had v/haf was considered its 
greatest showing ever. They jump- 

they finished ninth in a field of 32. 

Immediately on coming back home 
Edwards began setting up plans for 
his renowed team at Centenary. On 
their agenda is a goodwill tour to 
clinics and lectures in Monterrey 
and Mexico City and participation 
in the Coll3ne Women's Open in Illi- 
nois to be held in April. 

On February 3 and 4, Centenary 
will sponsor a clinic which will be 
an international tournament with the 
U. S. Men's team competing against 
the Mexican team. The Canadian 
Women's team will also be present 
for a dual match. 

Edwards himself will go to Ha- 
waii in December to compete for 
the championship of the National 
Amateur Athletic Union. From there,

Centenary To Meet LOYOLA On Gridiron 

Senate To Sponsor The First 
Intercollegiate Game In 22 Years 

Centenary will meet Loyola University of New Orleans in a 
football game scheduled for Sunday afternoon, Dec. 4, at the Fair 
Grounds Stadium in Shreveport, the Student Senate reported recently. 

The game, which will be the first 
for Centenary since 1942, will be 
sponsored jointly by the Senate and 
the Alumni Association. Only 9500 
tickets will be available, and 500 of

Miss 10-0. Centenary has seen 22 season without a single defeat (Centenary hasn't played in 22 
The 1966-67 squad should take heart in this record and make it a big 23 as they tackle Loyola 
tentatively on December 4 in Shreveport. The Maroon and White will need your full support plus all 
your friends. See you at the game. 

"Rhapsody" To Be Nov. 15-16 
At Shreveport Civic Theater 

The Centenary College Choir will present their annual "Rhapsody 
in View concert at the Shreveport Civic Theater on Tuesday and 
Wednesday. November 15 and 16 at 8:15 p.m. The program is spon- 
sored by the Downtown Shreveport Lions Club. The admission is Si. 00 
pet person, and tickets may be purchased from any choir member. 

The "Rhapsody in View dollar will 
be divided equally between the 
Downtown Shreveport Lions Club 
and the Centenary College Choir. 
The half that goes to the Lions Club 
will help to make possible jobs for 
the Shreveport Association for the 
Blind, will help in sight conservation, 
and will help send Shreveport boys 
and girls to the crippled children's 
camp at Leesville, Louisiana, oper- 
ated by the Louisiana Lions League 
for crippled children. 



Truth is stranger than fiction, 
Ihey say, and two well-known 
campus figures second this. 

Last Tuesday night, (Oct. 25), 
Dean Thad Marsh was walking 
west on 42nd St. in New York 
City when he happened to see 
Will Finnin walking east, across 
the street. Before the dean 
could shout to him, Will had 
walked on, never seeing Marsh. 

The next afternoon, the two 
met again and this time for a 
longer while. Both boarded a 
plane in New York to come back 
to Shreveport. 

Marsh was in New York for 
the annual meeting of the 
College Entrance Examination 
Board Before the meeting he 
spoke to the Pennsylvania Con- 
ference of Academic Deans at 
Moravian College in Bethlehem, 

Finnin was in the city to at- 
ten a meeting of the Board of 
Social Concern for the Metho- 
dist Church. 

The half that goes to the choir 
will help the choir to create and 
leave goodwill for Shreveport 
through trips, will help finance the 
purchase of new clothes for the 
choir, and, through the choir, will 
help to tell ethers about Shreveport 
and community. 

"Rhapsody in View," which is the 
first public performance of the choir 
this year, will Include a large variety 
of music, both sacred and secular. 
The program itself will be divided 
into three parts, with various kinds 
of music in each part. Between sec- 
tions, the choir accompanists, Gayle 
Boucher and David Blodgett, will 
perform piano solos. 

Debate Team Goes 
To Houston, Wins 
Nine Out of Twelve 

The Debate team of Centenary 
College participated in its first meet 
of the new year Saturday, October 
28. The contest was held at Bel 
Aire High school in Houston, Texas, 
with 19 colleges being represented 
in the College Division, and 72 high 
schools particiating. 

Representing Centenary at this 
meet were Leonard Critcher, Janelle 
McCammon, Pat Bissonet, and Alton 
McKnight. The team of Criticher and 
McCammon won all six of their pre- 
liminary rounds while Bissonet and 
McKnight won 3 and lost 3. Out 
of the 65 teams from nineteen 
Southwestern colleges, only eight 
went undefeated in the preliminary 
rounds. The results of the first meet 
far exceeded the expectations of the 
members, considering the nature of 
the kick-off tournament, according to 
Leonard Critcher. 

Next Thursday the team will leave 
for Texas Christian University for its 
first major tournament of the year. 

Next week will see them at 
Louisiana Tech where last year first 
place was taken in the women's 
senior division, and the year before 
the Sweepstakes honor was brought 
to Centenary. 

During the game, the National 
Collegiate Athletic Association rules 
will be in effect. 

these will be complimentary tickets 
to be donated for charity. Each 
ticket will cost $1. All pre-game 
tickets sold will go to the respective 
colleges, while gate sales will be 
split one-half for Centenary and 
one-half for Loyola. 

The Gents put up their football 
equipment in 1942 after an unsuc- 
cessful season which, according to 
that year's Yoncopin, "might have 
been a good one if the Gents could 
have had the proper reserve 
strength." Among the scores were 
Louisiana Tech 39, Centenary 7; La. 
State University 6, Centenary 6; 
Texas Tech 25, Centenary 0; Rice 
54, Centenary 0; and Washington 
University in St. Louis, Mo., 13, 
Centenary 7. 

During that year, however, the 
Gents had one of the greatest kick- 
ers ever to play for the college, 
Mayo Smith, who was, unfortunate- 
ly for the team, drafted in the mid- 
dle of the season. 

Practice for the coming game will 
begin Monday Nov. 7. Any regular 
enrolled male student who has not 
lettered on any collegiate football 
team is eligible. A coach has not 
been chosen. 

According to Roy Stringfellow, 
Senate coordinator for the event, 
the Senate hopes the game will be- 
come an annual affair. A game com- 
mittee has been formed and inter- 
ested students should contact String- 
fellow at 868-9634. 

United Fund Drive 
Concluded Nov. 3 

The Student S e n a t e-sponsored 
United Fund Drive was concluded 
with a chapel collection on Thurs- 
day, November 3. The drive was 
under the direction of the publicity 
committee chairman, Donna Bland. 

Several organizations on campus 
were asked to contribute in order 
to make th's year's drive more suc- 
cessful than those of past years. 
Collection boxes were placed in 
several locations. Also, the drive 
had been o/ven better publicity so 
that more students would be in- 
formed about it. 

The drive was conducted in co- 
ordination with the Shreveport drive.

rarian, was on Ihe Shreveport Unit-

tive of Centenary and helped the

The air is nippy, the leaves are changing — Football weather. 
For the past twenty-two years Centenary students have seen football 
seasons come and go without being able to partake in the "rites of fall." 
This year will be different. 

Due partly to Student Senate activity and financial backing, but 
mostly due to the students' interest in playing, Centenary will field a 
team against Loyola of New Orleans. 

Let us use this game to the fullest — as a spirit booster. Centenary 
spirit has in the past lived a sheltered life. It stuck its head out a 
little during Homecoming, but then quickly withdrew and hibernated 
unrjl we once again sang the Alma Mater with our "cheat sheets." 

This game can and shou'd furnish a different atmosphere. Is 
there a chance we can win — maybe. Does it matter — not really. The 
point is we are playing, we have a football team that everyone can 
shout, scream, freeze, and (celebrate) for. Already a fraternity is plan- 
ning a pre-game BONFIRE. Already Alums are showing interest. 
Already professional coaches are offering help. Already students are 
talking it up. Already boys are preparing for practice. ALREADY "THE 

The point is — Have spirit, show interest. Don't stop after this 
game either. Although our football team may not be known nationally, 
our basketball team is. Do yourself a favor — give yourself an "ALIVE' 
college to attend.

Academic Excellence - 
Semester Interim Program 


Centenary College has long been noted for the beauty of its 
campus. A fine example of a notable addition to campus beauty is 
that rambling old Southern plantation style dormitory — East Colonial 
Hill Easi < 'ilonial Hall stands tall and stately on a small hill by a 
sleepy silvered bayou. It is antique yellow in color, and is graced by 

onal columns along the front. Words alone cannot describe this 
building. It h.i^ to be seen and studied to be fully appreciated. 

In additio- to its physical appear- East Colonial on them would be 

ance, Centenary students may take 
pride in the historical significance 
of East Colonial Hall. For years be- 
fore it served as a dormitory, East 
Colonial housed the Centenary Med- 
ical and Health Center. In those 
davs, it was fondly known as "the 
infirmary." Older students will re- 
call, with a sense of sadness and 
pride, the many, many times that 
they trustingly went to "the infirm- 
for such seemingly little things 
as a flu shot or an excuse for a 
class. But these little things mount- 
ed up, and before long "the in- 
firmary" became almost a "home 
from home" for many stu- 
dents. Is it anv wonder then that 
these students are so deliriously 
happy for those honored few who 
are actually allowed to live in East 
Colonial Hall? Those few are priv- 
ileged to truthfully call "the infirm- 
ary" their "home away from home." 
A building that is of such great 
significance in the fields of beauty, 
history, and sentimentality is truly 
a building that will carry the name 
of Centenary far. Postcards and 
pamphlets with colorful pictures of 

wonderful publicity for the college. 

Certainly Centenary students real- 
ize how fortunate they are to be 
going to a college that Is Ine home 
of such a building. And it goes 
without saying that those living in 
East Colonial are more aware 
anyone else of the unique qualities 
of their dormitory. 

It almost seems a shame that on 
a campus the size of Centenary 
there is only one building with such 
universal appeal. It has been sug- 
gested that perhaps someday in the 
future, when Jackson Hall gets a 
little more of that "certain some- 
thing" that comes only with age, it 
could possibly become West Colon- 
ial Hall. If they start trying early 
enough, the gymnastics team may 
be able to persuade the adminis- 
tration to let them live there. This 
may present serious complications 
though, because where would the 
infirmary go next? 

Only time will tell what happens. 
In the meantime. Centenary must 
content itself with fabulous East 
Colonial Hall. 


The Forums Committee regrets that 
plans for the December Roy Wilkins 
Forum have been cancelled. The 
Committee is now seeking to bring 
Mr. Wilkins to campus on a later 
date. The following letter explains 
the circumstances causing Mr. Wilkins 
inability to appear on campus. 

October 24, 1966 
Mr. Will Finnin, Chairman 
Centenary Forums Committee 
Centenary College of Louisiana 
Shreveport, Louisiana 71)04 
Dear Mr. Finnin: 

Upon my return from vacation I 
find your letter renewing the invita- 
tion to speak at Centenary College 
in December. 

Unfortunately my schedule has not 
improved since I wrote you in May. 
The situation on the civil rights front 
is such that it has become necessary 
for all staff, on instructions from our 
National Board of Directors, to curtail 
engagements outside the Association 
and devote more time v i s i t i n g 
branches in Mississippi and Lcu'si- 
ana during the next several weeks, 
but my itinerary is so tightly set up 
that no other commitments could 
possibly be fitted in. 

I deeply appreciate your invita- 
tion and regret more than I can 
say that I cannot come to Centenary 
during this academic year. 

Very sincerely yours, 
Roy Wilkins 
Executive Director. 
The Forums Committee will begin 
in December to formulate guidelines 
and plans for the 67-68 Forums 
series. We solicit your ideas and 
comments in order to make Forums 
a stronger, more vital part of life at 
Centenary. Please address your 
comments to Will Finnin, Box 292, 
Campus Mail, or see me personally. 


At the beginning of the first se- 
mester, all independent students 
(those not belonging to a sorority or 
fraternity on campus) were asked to 
fill out questionnaires regarding their 
relation to campus life. Of the 381 
students who complied with this 
request, 115 indicated a strong de- 
sire to form an organization which 
would enable them to function as a 
group in campus politics, athletics, 
communications, service, and social 

There are frequent complaints 
that the Greek members "dominate" 
campus life. If an organization such 
as the one outlined above would 
better enable the independent stu- 
dent to function at Centenary, such 
an organizaion has the strong sup- 
port and sincere interest of the in- 
dependent representatives, the Stu- 
dent Senate (many of whom are 
Greeks), many students, the faculty, 
and the administration. In fact the 
Dean of Students has already called 
a meeting of six independents, mak- 
ing every effort to offer any assist- 
ance he could. These students have 
drawn up a temporary constitution,

"Lion Devouring A Horse" 

By Lucienne Bond 

Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863) was the first painter to break away 
from classicism French painting in the early 19th century. Classicists, 
such as Ingres, attempted to duplicate the style of Greece and Rome 
both in method and subject matter, making no efforr to record the life 
of their own times. This school frowned upon any style of painting 
other than its own and, when Delacroix insisted that men should 
be able to paint as they wanted, they denounced him as a revolutionary 
of the worst sort. 

Modern French painting began with 
Delacroix. Masters such as Cezanne, 
Matisse, and Picasso recognize Dela- 
croix as one of the greatest innova- 
tors in the history of art. 

Delacroix's genius is greatest in 
his brilliant color and his free handl- 
ing. In 1832, he had visited Africa, 
where he found a new field of 
subjects: scenes from Arabian and 
Jewish life and animal subjects. The 
work with which he was happiest 
was small, freely-handled subjects 
(such as animals in the etching be- 
longing to the library) and portraits 
of intimate friends such as Chopin. 

"Lion Devouring a Horse" is an 

etching given to the library in 1965 
by Dr. David Kimball. Etching is a 
process in which the artist covers a 
metal plate with an acid-resistant 
ground and, after the ground has 
dried, scratches his design into the 
plate's surface. The plate is then im- 
mersed in 'n acid solution which, 
in turn, "bites" the design out of 
the metal. Delacroix's etching is very 
dark but presents a fine example of 
the animal subjects which he handled 
so masterfully. 

"Lion Devouring a Horse" will be 
on special display in the libr 
during the next week.

How, What and Why Saul Alinsky- 
Come To The Forums And Find Out 

Saul Alinsky, who will be the third Forums speaker on Tuesday, November 8, is a self-styled "pro- 
fessional radical" who is said to "thrive on social strife". Mr. Alinsky, in advocating a radical approach 
to problems involving the urban poor, is particularly critical of current civil rights and War on Poverty 

A recent article in Time quoted 
Mr. Alinsky as saying that the fed- 
eral war on poverty is being used 
"to suffocate militant leadership that 
might threaten the Establishment." 
Such leadership among the poor 
themselves, says Alinsky, is their 
only real solution, and he incites it, 
as he acknowledges, by "rubbing 
raw the sores of discontent." The 
article further seys that "when he 
is invited into a' community, usually 
by Protestant and Catholic clergymen, 
Alinsky immediately declares war 
on the local powers that be, includ- 
ing the existing anti-poverty pro- 
gram. Opinions differ on his ac-

jects in Negro slums of Chicago, in 
California, New York, in Detroit, 
and in Kansas City. "He thinks," 
according to an official of the OEO 
(Office of Economic Opprotunity) 
"that he owns the poor." 

Alinsky, a native of Chicago, re- 
ceived his Ph.B. from the University 
of Chicago in 1930, and did gradu- 
ate work there for several years. 
His work in Chicago has involved 
founding of the Back of the Yards 
Neighborhood Council, and member- 
ship on the State rison Classification 
Board and on the Institute for Juve- 
nile Research. 

He is the author of numerous 
articles contributed to various peri- 
odicals and has written two books- 
Reveille for Radicals and John L. 
Lewis, A Biography. 

The following are "definitions," 
roined by Mr. Alinsky, which show 
his attitude toward various urban 
problems and programs:

Girls Get 
Parking Lot 

A parking lot was recently com- 
pleted behind James dormitory by 
the administration in an effort to 
improve the inferior parking con- 
ditions for the girls who park on 

The new blacktopped parking 
area accomodates 32 cars. The cost 
for paving the area was approxi- 
mately $34,000. 

Frank Austin, comptroller, said 
that the administration realized that 
parking conditions were unsatisfac- 
tory. He said the delay in remedy- 
ing that situation was due to a pro- 
posal to add a wing to James dorm- 
itory. When this idea was rejected, 
at least for the present, the admin- 
istration decided to pave the area. 

Austin said he was glad for the 
girls since they would no longer 
have to contend with skuffed shoes, 
dirt, slipping wheels, and flying 
rocks. He said, "We realized that 
their parking conditions were in- 
ferior, but now they are the best."

Faculty Accepts New 
Probation Rules 

In a recent meeting held Friday, October 28, 1966, the faculty 
voted unanimously to accept the revised regulations governing probation 
and dismissal. The regulations, which were proposed by the Admissions 
and Standards Committee, should be of interest to every student. The 
regulations mentioned below were rprinted almost directly from the 
proposal passed by the faculty. 

The principal alteration is that 
probation and the required cumula- 
tive averages for good standing are 
based on the academic year rather 
than each semester. This means that 
no student, except readmissions, can 
be suspended or dismissed from the 
college at mid-year. 

One of the changes is a new grad- 
uated scale of minimum standards 
for good academic standing for each 
year of study. This scale of required 
cumulative averages is as follows: 
First year (1 to 30 credits): 1.6: 
second year (31 to 60 credits): 18.,- 
third year (61 to 90 credits: 1.9. 
For graduation, a student must 
achieve a minimum average of 2.0 
in all work in his major and a min- 
imum of 2.0 in all other work taken. 
This is figured on a 4.0 scale. 

A student will be placed on pro- 
bation for the following reasons: (1) 
if at the end of any year his cumu- 
lative average falls below the stand- 
ards of the above scale, (2) if at the 
end of anv year his cumulative 
average in courses taken in his major 
falls below 2.0. 

Academic probation is intended as 
a warning to the student that his 
work has fallen below the standards 
necessary to allow him to graduate 
with his class. Probation is for a 
period of one academic year. 

A student who fails to achieve 
good standing by the end of his 
probationary period will be sus- 
pended from the College for a 


minimum of one semester. A stu- 
dent who has been suspended may 
apply to the Dean of the College 
for readmission, but is not guaran- 
teed readmission at that time. Re- 
admission will be on probation for 
a period of one semester only. A 
second suspension will constitute 
dismissal, and no further application 
for admission will be entertained. 

Freshmen who have not achieved 
an average of 1.6 by the end of 
their first semester will be warned 
that their work is below acceptable 
standards of the College. If by the 
end of his first year the freshman 
has not achieved an average of 1.3, 
he will be suspended from the Col- 

A student whose yearly average 
in any year falls below 1.0, whether 
or not he is on probation, is liable 
to suspension. A student on proba- 
tion who achieves a yearly average 
of 2.2 or better will not be sus- 
pended, whether or not his cumula- 
tive reaches the required standard 
for good standing. 

According to Dean Marsh, these 
new regulations were instituted to 
preserve and improve academic 
standings. It is seen as a companion 
piece to the raised admission re- 
quirements. Through these revised 
policies, the College wishes to at- 
tract better students, to have a better 
retention of the students and thus 
attract the best possible faculty 
through the high academic standing 
of the College. 

Religious Groups 
Plan Activities 

On Thursday night, November 10, 
a film concerned with censorship 
will be shown with the program en- 
titled: "The Evil Good Men Do" at 
the Episcooal Canterbury House. 

Inquirers' Classes for persons in- 
terested in the Episcopal Church will 
begin Monday, Nov. 7, at 6 p.m. 
in the Canterbury House. 

Persons interested in taking this 
series of four classes should speak 
to Father D aul or contact him at 
College Pos. 381. 

In case there is a conflict with 
the Monday evening time, other 
sessions can be arranged for your 
convenience. There is no obligation 
to join the Episcopal Church con- 
nected with the Inquirers' Classes. 

Last Sunday nighi, the Presbyter- 
ian Westminister Fellowship enjoy- 
ed a supper program at the home 
of Mr. and Mrs. John David Crow. 
The students watched a provocative 
CBS Special entitled "The Detached 
Americans." The film dealt with the 
underlying causes of today's cold, 
indifferent society. For next month's 
program, WF is planning a trip to 
Natchitoches for the annual Christ- 
mas lighting on December 3. 

Biology Department 
Launches New Boat 
With Captain Wilkins 

The Centenary Biology Depart- 
ment will place a research boat on 
Cross Lake this week. The new 
boat has been purchased by Cen- 
tenary College with the aid of the 
National Science Foundation from 
Wilbanks Marine Company, Bossier 
City, Louisiana. The craft, built by 
the Ski Barge Corporation, Knox- 
ville, Arkansas, will be used as a 
teaching aid in the field biology 
courses offered by Centenary Col- 
lege and as a research boat in the 
study of Cross Lake, Lake Bistineau, 
and other lakes in the Ark-La-Tex 
area. The Centenary Biology Depart- 
ment hopes to work in close con- 
cert with the Cross Lake Patrol and 
the Shreveoort Water Department. 
Cross Lake Patrol Officials have been 
very kind in allowing the Centen- 
ary Biology Department a berth in 
the compound at Patrol Headouar- 
ters. The Biology Department wishes 
to express appreciation to Captain 
Joseph Leslie of the Cross Lake 
Patrol and Mr. William F. Gaines of 
the Shreveport Water Department 
for their interest and efforts in be- 
half of this project. It is felt here 
that in time, worthwhile contribu- 
tions can be made in behalf of this 
area throuqh the imolementation of 
a program of aauatic study. The 
Administration and the Maintain*nce 
Department of Centenary College is 
to be thanked for their interest, aid, 
and cooperation. 

The new boat is powered bv a 
33 horseoower Evinrude outboard 
engine. It has a length of twenty 
feet, a 94 inch beam, and a load 
capacity of 3000 pounds. In the 
first stage of the program it will 
be used as a training craft in plank- 
ton studies, thermocline and oxygen 
consentration studies, and in th» 
classification of larger flora and

an attempt to bring to the public 
select a name for the boat. The 
name selected must be based either 
on the scientific name of some aqua- 
tic organism or on greek mythol- 
ogy in relation to the sea. The per- 
son whose contribution is finally 
selected will receive a prize of ona 
dollar or a free meal at the Centen- 
ary College Cafeteria. Suggestions 
may be placed in an envelope with 
the student's name and submitted to 
any member of the biology staff. 

Choir Slates 
Different Show 

In its second offering of the tele- 
vision season, the Centenary College 
Choir will explore the subject of time 
through a number of songs ranging 
from the romantic and humorous all 
the way to Bach and back. The pro- 
gram, sponsored by the Southwest- 
ern Electric ower Company, will be 
telecast over KTBS-TV, channel 3, on 
Tuesday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m. 

Commenting on the program, the 
choir's director Dr. A. C. "Cheesy" 
Voran stated that the shows were 
an attempt to bring o the public 
something different and refreshing 
and a definite change of pace from 
the usual television fare. Judging 
from the rather unorthodox selection 
of numbers to be featured, this next 
proaram should definitely live up 
to its expectations.

Widow's Walk To Be 
Seen In December 

By Rick Walton 

"Widow's Walk," a play by contemporary Texas playwright Ramsey 
Yelvington, will make its world premiere at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse 
December 2-3 and 8-10. This will be the seventh world premiere at 
Marjorie Lyons in seven years. The play will be directed by Professor 
Orlin Corey, chairman of the Speech and Drama Department.

cast and technical crews were as- 
signed and during the month of 
October, lines have supposedly been 
learned and the completion of the 
set structure, under the direction of 
Gary Corn, has been in progress. 
Rehearsal of the play will begin 
October 31 with the return of the 

Heads of the various technical 
:rews are Paula Stahls, Stage Mana- 
ger, Rick Walton, Lighting; Jay Bra- 
num, Sound; Gary Corn, Set Con- 
struction; Ken Holamon, Set Paint- 
ing; Linda Goldberg, Props; Cheryl 
Love, Costumes and Make-up; Jeannie 
Smith, House Manager; Cathy Lar- 
moveux, Box Office. 

Of great importance to this pro- 
duction is the fact that Mr. Ramsey 
Yelvington, author of "Widov/s 
Walk", will be present at Marjorie 
Lyons for the final rehearsals and 

has been writing plays for a number 
of years, and it is hoped that this 
production will bring to Mr. Yelv- 
ington the recognition which he 
deserves. National critics have been 
invited to the opening performance. 
Mr. Yelvington is reputed to be 
quite a storyteller, so his presence 
at Marjorie Lyons should be enter- 
taining as well as educational for 
those involved in the production. 

The play is set in a small South- 
east Texas town and centers around 
the interpersonal conflicts and re- 
lations between the main characters. 
These are Victoria Ingenhuett who 
will be played by Carol Thomas, 
Rev. Rolfe Seagraves played by 
Jack Mulcay, and Norma Merchant 
played by Kathy Anderson. This 
play is thought to be quite a dif- 
ferent experience in theatre and 
should prove quite interesting for 
those who see it.

Bio* Group 
Travels To 
Gulf Coast 

Members of the biology depart- 
ment of Centenary College recently 
made a marine field trip to the Gulf 
Coast Marine Laboratory at Ocean 
Springs, Mississippi. 

Fourteen junior and senior stu- 
dents, one geology student, and 
four faculty members— Dr. Wilkins, 
biology; Dr. Spears, biology; Mrs. 
Spears, mathematics; and Mr. Har- 
rington, librarian, went on the field 
trip. The group left Shreveport at 
noon on Wednesday, arrived Wed- 
nesday night, and returned on 
Saturday, October 22. 

The primary objective of the ex- 
cursion to the marine laboratory was 
to stimulate the student in biology, 
to aid him in professional orienta- 
tion, and to acquaint him with the 
necessity for trained personnel in 
marine science. 

Thursday morning was spent col- 
lecting marine specimens and study- 
ing ecological systems. Specimens 
were collected by seining, crabbing, 
and clamming off a pier, wading in 
the surf and in rowboats near the 
shoreline. Thursday afternoon was 
spent visiting the main laboratory 
in Pascagoula, Mississippi and in 
viewing three films on marine bi- 

All dav Friday was spent at sea 
on the Gulf Coast Research Vessel, 
Hermes, and in exploration of Ship 
Island. Marine specimens were col- 
lected by traveling and with a 
plankton net on the boat and by 
a beach patrol on the thirteen mile 
isbited island.

With the regular season nearing an end and the play-offs only 
a few days away the four berths in men's football have been decided. 
This editor's prediction at the first of the year held exactly true with 
Killer's Boys, Kappa Sigma, Kappa Alpha, and Cossa's Robbers reaching 
the playoffs. It appears right now that first place will be decided when 
Killer's Boys play Kappa Sigma if Kappa Sigma can get by Kappa 
Alpha in their final regular season game. 
This year's football season show- 

ed a remarkable decline in num- 
ber and extent of injuries. Last 
year, there was approximately 
$8,000 in intramural football injur- 
ies, but this season saw a great 
drop, due mainly of more competent 
officials and several rule changes 
concerning play. 

Centenary College was well rep- 
resented this past weekend in the 
football snake-pit of the South for 
the traditional Halloween clash of 
LSU-Ole Miss. Several carloads of 
local Tiger fans made the journey 
and joined in the battle cry 
"Go to Hell Ole Miss, Go to 
Hell," but it didn't seem to do much 
good as the Tigers fell 17 to 0. In 
the wee hours of the morning the 
cries had subsided to a simple word 
which typified the whole weekend: 

It has been brought to my at- 
tention that Loyola has challenged 
Centenary College to a Charity Bowl 
game around December 4. All pro- 
ceeds would go to charity and who 
knows, but enough interest might 
be stimulated to return a football 
team to Centenary which was a 
national power about three decades 
ago. Lefs hope so . . .

Linda Jolly, N.T.S.U., asks 

"Can you face up to a close up?" 

Clean, clear complexion can stand any 
close up test. Medicated OJ's Beauty Lo- 
tion really cleans and clears re- 
freshes, too. It's the best close up treat 
you can give your skin because it works 
three ways: as an effective cleanser, a 
refreshing astringent, and a medicated aid 
in the treatment of acne pimples. 

For close up beauty, try OJ's! 


Centenary Goes Cool 

Yes, "coolness" has come to Centenary. This fact is clearly shown by the clothes worn by the 
fashion-conscious students of today. Any person who looks down on the Centenary campus (down, as 
in direction) cannot help but notice the number of boys who support that newest trend in collegiate 
fashion— no socks. It is common knowledge that socklessness is the epitome of supreme suaveness. 

"cool boys." The second group of boys who don't wear socks for miscel- 
sockless boys, a group that is grow- laneous reasons. A common miscellan- 
ing rapidly, are the boys that play cool. eous re ason is laziness. Some boys 

However, statistics have shown that 
it is unrealistic to assume that all boys 
who wear no socks are "cool." Con- 
versely, all cool boys do not necessar- 
ily wear no socks. There are a few 
other ways to be cool. 

A recent survey has brought forth 
the theory that sockless boys may be 
roughly divided into five categories. 
First, and most prevalent, are the 
previously-mentioned "cool boys." It 
is this group of boys that do not rely 
solely on their feet for their popular- 
ity. They also have other qualities 
that tend to characterize them as 

These boys are the ones that have 
noticed that many of the cool boys 
don't wear socks, so they "play cool" 
by not wearing socks, too. The third 
group of sockless boys (a most pitiful 
situation) includes those who just don't 
have any socks. Also classified in this 
group are those boys who don't have 
any clean socks. Fourth, some boys 
simply have got feet. These boys nev- 
er wear shoes of any kind when they 
have to. The final category includes 

cannot face struggling with a pair of 
socks early in the morning. Too much 
is entailed in the process, like getting 
socks to match, getting the toe of the 
foot fitted exactly into the toe of the 
sock. etc. 

Although these five categories will 
classify most sockless boys fairly ac- 
curately, it is often misleading to 
completely judge a boy by his feet.

It's A Great Life - 
Isn't It, Girls?? 

Good morning, Mrs. Grunchley. Yes ma'am, this is my room. 
Well, it is sort of messy, but I stayed up all night studying for a 
mid-semester. You know you have to wait till things get quiet at 
night to start studying. 

By the way, is it ten o'clock yet? 

You know, everytime I really clean up my room, I can't 
find anything for days. I have to make little stacks everywhere 
because this extra desk only has four tiny drawers. Golly, if I had 
known it was going to be this crowded. . . 

Yes ma'am, and that's why the closet is so cluttered. Oh, do I 
have to clean it up, too? 

Did you notice the boxes under the bed? That's where all my 
sweaters are. And the books under my desk? Well, there's no where 
else to put them. 

That cheese outside the window? No ma'am, it wouldn't fit in 
the refrigerator. No ma'am, that was last year; this year there are 
120 in this dorm. 

Ahem, uh, well, yes, it's a hamster. His name is Egbert. Oh, 
why does he have to go. He doesn't bother anybody, and he adds 
a little warmth to my bed at night when the heat isn't on. 

Oh — the pile of clothes. Well, I'm waiting to wash them. Today 
there are only 19 ahead of me. 

Noise? Oh, no ma'am. It wasn't our record player. It was 
coming from 217 — one floor up and 4 doors down. 

Do you have to go in the bathroom? Well, after all 5 of us 
took our showers this morning, there just wasn't time to clean up. 

Well, thank you ma'am. Come back soon. When?? Again on 
Friday, huh. Ohhhhhhh

Ark - La - Tex 
Admission Seminar 

Seven predictions about the United 
States Government's increased role in 
higher education were made by Dr. 
C. V. Galbreath in his keynote speech 
before the first annual Ark-La-Tex 
Admission Seminar at the Hurley 
Music Building on Saturday, Oct. 29. 

Dr. Galbreath, who is the regional 
representative for the Office of High- 
er Education of the Department of 
Health, Education and Welfare, spoke 
before 52 high school counselors and 
college admissions officers assembled 
for the all-day program which was 
sponsored by Centenary College. 

In answer to a question about the 
attitude toward private education, Dr. 
Galbreath said that "the Government 
is, and will continue to be, conscious 
of the continuous dual role of public 
and private education. We cannot af- 
ford to let this balance be changed." 

"The United States can't afford the 
risk," he stated, "that some potential 
Edison or Einstein will be lost to our 
future because we couldn't afford to 
help him. 

Dr. Galbreath also described the 
four principal student aid programs 
of the government. They are: the Na- 
tional Defense Student Loan, the Col- 
lege Work-Study Program, Education- 
al Opportunity Grants, and the In- 
sured Loan Program. 

(Ed. Note: Centenary students 
wishing details about any of these 
programs can get them in the Finan- 
cial Aid Office, AB4, from Mrs. Rose- 
mary Eubanks.)

What About Football At Centenary? 

The scheduled football game between Centenary and Loyola 
and excitement among the student body of Centenary. Everyone 
enary will play its first intercollegiate football game since 1947. 
scheduled, and practice for the event will begin soon. 
According to a poll on campus 

there are approximately seventy high 
school football veterans presently at- 
tending Centenary. Allowing for those 
under various scholarships 
or othei athletic activities, then' are 
enough experienced players to com- 
pose a first rate team

fans in Shreveport who are willing to 
attend the game to put the expense-

A Weakly Column 

Surprise! Something new in the Conglomerate! (Not really— 
we just didn't want to call it "Gras Doux" again.) This week's issue 
of that steadfast chronicle of Centenary witnesses a return of the 
weekly (or, as our heading most appropriately notes, weakly) humor 
article. In the coming days, weeks, and months, we shall do our 
best to see that no firk or quoible escapes our discerning eye. It 
is our sincere hope that we can establish an outlet for the daily 
complaints and suggestions of the frustrated students at Naryland 
so that they may honestly and forthrightly release their pent-up 
dissatisfactions with the student body, the faculty, the adminisra- 
tion, and SYSTEM. (In other words, what we really want is a 
nice, dirty cut and slash column.) 

It is extremely difficult for us to say at the present time just 
exactly where we want to start on our glorious revolution, so for 
now, we have decided to list at random a few of the suggestions 
for improvement that have come to this office. 

1. Instead of the elaborate sign-out, sign-in, sign-out, sign-in system 
for going to the library between 10:30 P.M. and midnight, why 
don't we just get a couple hundred balls and chains that will 
stretch from the dorms to the library? 

2. Or wouldn't it be nice to just dispense with the Student Senate 
Elections every spring and just let the Class Favorites and Cent- 
enary Lady and Gentleman take over the S.G.A.? (It all amounts 
to the same thing anyway!) 

3. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Conglomerate really came out 
every week? 

4. Great Idea! Rather than make the band go through all the 
trouble of playing "Pomp and Circumstance" just let the Seniors 
skip in singing "We're Off to See the Wizard!" 

5. Ever wonder who "Mandrake" really is? Wouldn't it be nice 
to know? 

6. Ever wonder who the President of the College really is? 
Wouldn't it be nice to know? 

7. How would you like to know what the $25,000.00 activity fee 
is being spent for? So would we! 

Instead of having Sunday night meals in the cafeteria, why not 
give everybody a free pass to Murrell's? 

Rather than make Seniors take Great Issues, why not just re- 
quire two semesters of English 101? 

Instead of having the Dean's Office send out pink slips, why 
not just send letters edged in black to parents? 

These are just a few ideas that have come off the top of our 
head. (Which may account for the peculiar scalped feeling we're 
having after mid-semester.) If anyone has any further suggestions 
to make for improvement of conditions in our beloved home by the 
sleepy silver bayou, please send them, addressed to this column in 
care of the Conglomerate. 

As we said at the beginning, this is our first attempt this year. 
W e humbly appologize for any oversight that may have been made. 
We do NOT appologize for offending anyone. If vour toes got 
stepped on, check to see if the shoe fits! (We also do not appologize 
for Spoonerized cliches.) If you have committed a funny and didn't 
get stabbed in the back, don't hold vour breath— you'll get yours 
sooner or later! Till the next time the Conglomerate comes out, 
then, adieu!

Drama Troupe 
Widely Acclaimed 

Who are the Everyman Players? The Peterborough Evening 
Telegraph in England referred to the fifteen member company as 
"a professional group internationally recognized as outstanding in 
the production of religious drama." But this, as most of the stories 
written about the Everyman Players, is evasive. 

The Everyman Players is a profes- 
sional troup directed and managed by 
Professer Orlin Corey. During the 
summer diey invaded die mountains 
of Kentucky and performed THE 
BOOK OF JOB which won national 
acclaim several years ago when it was 
featured as cover stop,' in Life maga- 
zine. Normally the company suspends 
work during die school year, but re- 
rrnilv the) returned from England 
where they performed ROMANS B1 
in a dozen of die hi drals.

Players are Professor and Mrs. Orlin

During the recent one month tour 
the troup was acclaimed by all re- 
viewing newspapers. The Birmingham 
Post (in the same story which panned 
Sir Alex Guinness' MACBETH) called 
ROMANS "an unusual experience" 
while the Fast Anglican Daily Times 
called it "a most powerful produc- 
tion". Doreen Tanner, reviewer I>t

Alinsky Discusses 'Revolution' 
As Centenary Barely Attends 

"If you have any notion about treating me as a guest with your, at this point being somewhat 
questioned, Southern Hospitality, forget it. My organization is being paid for my appearance here." 

Speaking Tuesday night, November 
8, as die third in this semester's 
series of Forum speakers, Saul Alinsky 
opened with the above statement, and 
added that "no rules of host-and- 
guest need apply." He said that he 
was "a little bit disappointed" at 
Shreveport's failure to greet him with 
a bedsheet welcoming. 

Mr Alinsky, a social revolutionary 
and expert organizer, spoke on "The 
Social Revolution of America's Poor," 
including the present Civil Rights 

He said that poverty has always 
been a dualistic phenomena. "It's not 
just a matter of a lack of economic- 
means, it also is a lack of power." 
"Power" was defined as "die ability 
to act." 

According to Mr. Alinsky, the issue 
of power and poverty first arose in 
the founding of America. "This was 
the issue which was central in the 
ihsi Papers. It was the issue in 
which Hamilton and Madison and Jay 
carried-out their debates. I should 
pause to tell you diat, in case you're 
not aware of it, that the American 
revolutionaries, who are now known, 
cliche-like, as the Founding Fathers, 
in extraordinarily politically lit- 
erate and sophisticated group of in- 
dividuals ." 

He continued by saying that these 
men knew very' well the difference 
n the world as it is and the 
world as they would like it to be. 
The basie problems of the American 
Revolution, he said, have continued 
"As far as we're concerned, and I'm 

'he Founding 1 
were concerned, the American Revo- 
lution began in 76, but it still is 
going on. This country is still divided 
between Tones and Radicals " Mi 
Alinsky said that the one thin 
founders did am. 
most dangerous enemy in th< 

e fact that we could not at any- 
time tolerate a situation where a -uli- 
stantial sector of the American people 


would be deprived, both economically 
and politically, and locked out, so to 
speak, disenfranchised out of the 
American way." 

The quickest waj to see the differ 
ence between the ideal and real 
worlds, lie said, was to note the dif- 
ference between a night of TV situa- 
tion comedies ami the realities of the 
10:00 news. In the world as it is, th( 
world of the news, "the right thing is 
usually done for the wrong reasons, 
and vice-versa." 

In saying that conflict is a funda- 
mental concept, Mr. Alinsky asserted 
himself in favor of controversy and 
difference of opinion. "I don't know 
that there is any such animal in the 
world as a non-controversial issue, be- 
ntradiction in terms." 
"Conflict," he continued, "is one of 
the great marks of a free soeiet\ II 
you want to find a society which 
doesn't have conflict, and which has 
what is the current jazz, and a fash- 
ionable thing, consensus, then you go 
to a good totalitarian society where 
or you go to a 
concentration camp." 

Mr Alinsky said that when one 
in mind t! pts of con- 

ns involved 
lrr.iln.ii.il |, r , i 
not be handled on a rational level he- 

cause "the basic target that you're go- 
ing after is not on that level." He 
added that since, in the world as it is, 
men react on the basis of self-interest, 
the only way to change men is to 
target-in on their self-interest. "Speci- 
Fically, for example, I'm the one who 
first said that die bridge between 
black and white is green, the color of 
a buck." 

"Ever) action that mankind takes 
always has to have a moral rationale 
about it. So then, this moral rationale 
is brought up to dress up your basic 

He concluded by saying that die 
fact diat one realistii ally accepts die 
world should only enhance Ins desire 
to change it. He quoted Edmund 
Burke, who said, "Evil only triumphs 
when good men do nothing." 

Commenting on the slogan "Fight

rector for the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse, is shown above as he 
begins plans for his direction of GREAT GOD BROWN to be 
shown in the spring. 

Playhouse Names 
Technical Director 

The Marjorie Lyons Playhouse is a mystical shadow in the 
minds of many Centenary students, but for those of us who have 
observed its workings, the Marjorie Lyons is a center of thriving 
activity. One of the many persons responsible for this atmosphere is 
the new technical director, Mr. Phil Anderson. 
Mr. Anderson comes to Centenary 

from Indiana University where he re- 
cently received his masters degree in 
theater. While at Indiana Mr. Ander- 
son was co-technical director of the 
Indiana Touring Co. This is a com- 
pany of Indiana U. students who reg- 
ularly present theatrical performances 
in Indiana and othei surrounding 

It was also while at Indiana that 
Mr. Anderson auditioned for The Book

Swingle Singers To Sing, 
Senate Sponsors Concert 

On November 19, the "Swingle 
Singers" will appear at the new Civic 
Theatre of Shreveport in a concert 
sponsored by the Student Senate. As 
previously announced, admission to 
the two hour concert for Centenary 
Students will be by activity card. 

Since their first recording, "Bach's 
Greatest Hits," the Swingle Singers 
have been one of the most popular 
groups on the concert stage. They 
have now four recordings near the top 
of the best-selling lists including "The 
Swingle Singers Going Baroque," and 
"The Swingle Singers: Anyone for 

The group consists of four women- 
two sopranos and two altos— and four 
men— two tenors and two bass-bari- 
tones. And what does this group do? 
Mr. Swingle and his extraordinary 
singers take the music of Bach, and 
other Baroque and romantic compos- 
ers, and make it swing. Perhaps the 
most remarkable feature is that the 
notes are left exactly as the composer 
wrote them— there are no deletions, 
changes, or additions. The only ad- 
justment necessary is its use of bass 
and drums to make it swing. 

There is one other intriguing feat- 
ure— the tasteful array of vocal sounds 
that is brought into play. With a 
vocabulary made up largely of hums 
and "daba-daba-daba," the group 
finds a remarkable amount of variety 
for its precisely stated and engagingly 
swinging treatments. 

The only soloist featured to any 
extent is Christine LeGrand, a soprano 
whose interpretations of parts original- 
ly written for flute or harpsichord has 
established her as the Ella Fitzgerald 
of pre-twentiefh century music. The 
other soprano is Jeannette Baucomont, 
a student of the National Conserva- 
tory of Montellier. 

Anne Germain, singing contralto, 
has perhaps the most outstanding 
voice of the "Swingle Singers," being 
of unusual range and therefore easily 
adaptable to all styles of singing. 

Alice Herald, the second contralto, 
is an experienced singer in orchestra 

jazz and vaudeville of France. She has 
studied under many of the leading 
voice experts of our time. 

Ward Swingle, directors sings first 
tenor and has the distinction of being 

the only American in the group. He 
founded the Swingle Singers in 1962. 
Claude Germain, tenor, is Anne 
Germain's husband. His brother Jose 
sings first bass-baritone.

Centenary History Contains 
Much To Inspire Student Pride 


Centenary College of Louisiana has had a history of which its students and faculty should be 

The forerunner of the present Cent- 
enary College of Louisiana, then 
called the College of Louisiana, was 
under the direction of the state from 
1825 until 1845. 

The school was about to be closed 
when some land in Jackson, La., was 
acquired. When the college moved 
there in 1845, the name was changed 
to Centenary College of Louisiana, as 
the name is now. Although school was 
suspended during the Civil War be- 
cause all the students had gone to 
war, the college was not closed. 

When the school re-opened in 1866, 
tuition was $75 per annum and board- 
ing was $20 - $25 per month. One of 
the interesting regulations imposed 
during this period was the Demerit 
System of 1876. Minor offenses such 
as loud talking or wrestling during 

study hours were punishable by one 
demerit, while major offenses such as 
being on top of the building was 
punishable by five demerits. For five 
demerits a person received private 
reproof; for ten, public reproof; for 
15, parents notified; and for 20, in- 
definite- suspension. During this period 
the college grew and prospered, de- 
spite the difficult years of reconstruc- 

Because the village of Jackson was 
by-passed by railroads and lacked 
other modifications of the twentieth 
century, die college was moved to 
Shreveport, formally opening in Sep- 
tember, 1908. In 1912 the first com- 
mencement exercises were held in 
Shreveport, graduating a class of five. 
In 1923 the bi-weekly paper The 
Maroon and White was changed to

at El Dorado, Arkansas.

the weekly publication The Conglom- 

Now, 40 years later, Centenary Col- 
lege is fully acknowledged by all ap- 
propriate regional and national stand- 
ardizing and accrediting agencies. The 
graduating class of five has greatly 
multiplied. Truly, Centenary College 
of Louisiana has served Louisiana well 
for 141 years, providing a valuable 
educational service. 

Board Names

It's official now that football has returned to Centenary College 
again. Centenary has been challenged by the Student Senate of 
Loyola Universtiy of New Orleans to play on Sunday afternoon 
December 4th. Contrary to reports in local newspapers, the game 
will be played in Shreveport and will begin at approximately 2 p.m. 

The administration of the college has okayed the game, but it 
will not be under the jurisdiction of the athletic department. A Stu- 
dent Senate committee under the leadership of Roy Stringfellow is 
in charge of the project and is in present need of more people who 
are interested in helping with setting up the event. Anyone inter- 
ested should contact Roy or another member of the Senate. 

The immediate plans are to obtain game equipment from a 
local high school and to play the game at State Fair Stadium at the 
fairgrounds. Two local men with a great deal of football experience, 
Leo Sanford and Nickie Hester, have agreed to handle the coaching 
duties of the Centenary gridders. 

Mr. Sanford is a former captain of the Louisiana Tech football 
team and went on to make quite a name for himself in the profes- 
sional ranks with the Chicago Cardinals and the Baltimore Colts. 
He was a member of the championship Colt team that beat the New 
York Giants on fullback Alan Rineche's sudden death touchdown 
several years ago. 

Mr. Hester is presently an assistant on the staff of 1-AAA power 
Byrd High School and is a former head coach of a local junior high. 

Centenary is very fortunate to obtain the services of these two 
well-qualified men who will certainly do a fine job. 

Any one enrolled at Centenary who is interested in participat- 
ing in the contest and has not lettered in college football should 
contact the coaches, Roy Stringfellow, or some member of the 
football committee. 

Practice is due to begin on November 9 at 3:00 p.m. at the base- 
hall field. Adjustments will be made so those who work or have 
labs can participate in the practices. 

It is this writer's hope that the student body will go all out to 
support his effort by the Student Senate. The subject of football 
team at Centenary College arises often, and this is an excellent op- 
portunity to prove the point that the students would support a 
college team. Most students come from high schools where the 
football season was one of the high points of the school year, and 
naturally there is a lag in school spirit when Centenary has no such 
program. Many schools the size of our college actively support 
a football program with rioted success, and there is no reason why 
Centenary could not do the same and still maintain the high degree 
of academic excellence for which the school is noted. 

CC Gymnasts Travel,

The Centenary College women's gymnastics team traveled to

A few of the questions Coach Sigler had at the beginning of

In other women's intramural action, 
loy Anderson defeated lanet Talley 
for the tennis championship by scores 
of 5-7, 6-4, and 6-2. 

Preparations are now underway for 
the beginning of the basketball season 
which will start before Thanksgiving. 

He also stressed that there are still 
about three weeks of practice before 
the regular season begins. 

The up-coming Freshmen-Varsity 
Game could be billed as speed vs. 
altitude, if you will allow a shght 
understatement. It seems that Shoe is 
going to be up the creek if his three 
guards (one of which played center 
in high school) get into foul trouble or 
a good pressing defense. This group 
is at loose ends at this time, as all 
freshman teams are. It is very hard to 
try to say anything about what to 
expect from them during the season. 
All we can do is "hide and watch." 


In the first game of a twinbill series 
for the intramural championship, Kap- 
pa Sigma I tackled Cossa's Robbers. 
The first half was dominated by 
stubborn defenses, by both teams. 
The second half started fast with 
Cossa's scoring after taking the kick- 
off. The score came on a 15-yard 
pass from Mollis Jacobie to Ed Cabra. 
The try for extra point failed. With 
five minutes remaining in the half, 
the Sig First team scored after a bad 
punt by Cossa's. The score came on a 
reverse pass from lay Stewart to Leon- 
ard Critcher. The extra point failed. 
After an exchange of punts, Sig I took 
the ball and drove for a score that 
ended with lohn Morrison passing 15 
yards to Jay Stewart. Again the try 
for extra point failed. The final score 
was 12 to 6. 

The second game matched Kappa 
Alpha with Killer's Boys. With less 
than a minute left in the first half, 
Bob Hightower intercepted an Ed 
Shiro pass and raced untouched for 
the score. Richard Rogers added the 
extra point, and the score read 7 to 
at half. Bill Garfield took the second 
half kickoff and raced 65 yards for a 
quick score. The Alpha's third score 
came on a 15-yard pass from Warren 
Lowe to Mac Griffith with Richard 
Rogers carrying the ball a major por- 
tion of the drive. Lowe added the 
extra point. The final score came on 
a 19-yard rollout-run by Lowe, which 
gave the Alpha's a 26 to advanage. 
This set the scene for the champion- 
ship game between Kappa Sigma 
and Kappa Alpha.

The famous Swingle Singers of France will appear this Satur- 
day night, November 19, at the Shreveport Civic Theatre in a 
program sponsored by the Centenary Student Senate. The presen- 
tation, which will begin at 8:30, is free to all Centenary students 
who have their student activity cards. 
And what do the Swingle Singers on the concert stage. They now have 

four recordings near the top of the 
best-seller lists, including "The Swin- 
gle Singers Going Baroque" and "The 
Swingle Singers: Anyone for Mozart?" 
The program for Saturday night is 
in two parts and will include a variety 
of songs from all the albums. Some 
of the numbers to be presented in 
the first part of the program are 
Bach's Fugue in D Minor and his 
Prelude for Organ Chorale, Mendels- 
sohn's Andante from String Quartet, 
Mozart's Allegro from Sonata in C, 
and Tclemann's Concert for Six. Part 
two will include Twinkle, Twinkle 
Little Star, Daquin's Cou-Cou, Han- 
del's Allegro from Concerto Grosso, 
and Mozart's Eine Kleine Nacht 

An intriguing feature of the Sing- 
ers' stslc- is the tasteful array of vocal 
sounds that is brought into play. With 
a vacabulary made up largely of hums 
and "daba-daba-daba " the group 
finds a remarkable amount of variety 
for its precisely stated and engagingly 
swinging treatments. 

Ward Swingle, director, sings first 

ml has th. distinction of being 

ly American in the group. He 

founded the Swingle Singers in 1962. 

Claude Germain, Tenor, is Anne 

Germain's husband. His brother Jose 

sings first bass-baritone. 

do? Mr. Swingle and his extraordinary 
singers take the music of Bach and 
other Baroque and Romantic com- 
posers, and make it "swing." The 
most remarkable feature, perhaps, is 
that the notes are left exacdy as the 
composer wrote diem. There are no 
deletions, changes, or additions. The 
only adjustment necessary is the use 
of bass and rums to set the fugues, 
proludes, and other compositions in 
4/4 time and, to repeat, make it 

The group was formed in Novem- 
ber. 1963, when the singers decided 
to record their first album, which 
practically made them famous over- 
night. That first recording, Bach's 
Greatest Hits" made the Swingle Sing- 
ers one of the most popular groups.

Who For The GOP In '68 


With the results of recent state election now factual, the next 
hurdle for this country's politicians is the forthcoming 1968 presi- 
dential elections. One might check the results of the recent state 
elections to find a direct relationship between the theories of 
liberalism vs. conservatism. LBJ's present administration is founded 
more on the strong hberal reform. Yet his military policies are 
stuck in the seething mud of the Viet Nam "peace action." The 
pride of Americanism can not tolerate the farces of his administra- 
tion's peace effort. Our heritage of steadfastness for our ideologies 
will not accept the present laxity in LBJ's efforts to stay in the 
same rut, public opinion states. 

Letters 'Pun cut4 &&me& 

The next president will certainly 
be a more forcible idealist, students 
seem to feel. From the Korean conflict 
we should have learned our lesson. 
Was McArthur being irrational at the 
close of the Korean War? Does Gold- 
water seem so irrational now, two 
years after his craze? It is felt that 
LBJ is simply sitting in a rice paddy 
to keep his feet dry (in anticipation 
of a '68 renomination). 

If President Johnson's popularity 
continues to decrease, as nationwide 
polls report, he (if nominated to run 
again) and the Democratic Party 
might witness more Republican vic- 
tories in the Senate, the House, state 
capitols, and even in the White House. 

At present more attention is being 
placed on the presidential election. 
A strong, forceful Republican candi- 
date is mandatory to bring a Republi- 
can victory. Who will be the Repub- 
lican presidential nominee in 1968? 

The choice is wider than in previous 
years. In 1960, Nixon was almost 
unanimously nominated by the public 
even before the convention. In 1964, 
the strong conservative feelings pulled 
for the Goldwater nomination. 

Students feel the potential '68 Re- 
publican nominees are numerous. The 
most popular candidates include form- 
er Vice-President Richard Nixon, Gov- 
ernor George Romney of Michigan, 
Governor-elect Ronald Reagan of Cali- 
fornia, and Senator Everett Dirksen 
of Illinois. However, students feel just 
Nixon and Romney are most likely 
nationwide. Senator-elect Charles Per- 
cy and New York Mayor John Lindsay 
are possible candidates for the Vice- 
Presidency, some students have stated. 

Romn- y and Nixon are the top 
aders for the nomination, a ma- 
jority nf ill, students Feel Most stu- 
dents would r.ither see Nixon get the 
nomination, lint feel that Romney will 
probably capture the nomination be- 
better chance of win- 
ning the election. Romney is not quite 
as conservative as Nixon, and Rom- 
iews might he more acceptable 
to the bull "I ill, public over the 

Governor Romney recently won re- 
in by a big margin (500,000 
votes). "His Intelligence, personality, 
and achieve to the pub- 

r.,1 students. Romney 
is attractive not only to the Republi- 

cans and moderate Democrats, but 
also to most minority groups. How- 
ever, his recent views on labor have 
created opposition in the labor group. 
Despite this opposition, he is probably 
top contender. He has not formally 
announced his candidacy yet, but he 
is obviously pulling for the nomina- 

Richard Nixon is the most popular 
candidate among Centenary students. 
Nixon is experienced, moderate, 
well-known and well-liked. He has 
probably more party contacts than 
most other Republican. He was de- 
feated in 1960 by only a small margin 
of popular vote and still retains his 
popularity gained while Vice-Presi- 
dent and '60 Republican nominee. He 
is the only open candidate at present. 

Ronald Reagan, another possible 
contender, is undisputedly the popular 
choice of conservatives. He recently 
won the California Governor's race by 
a million-vote margin. However, it is 
felt by most students that he is un- 
likely to be nominated because he is 
too "fresh". He is presently too un- 
experienced, too conservative, and 
lacks the party contacts which other 
possible contenders have. Many stu- 
dents feel that Reagan will continue 
his non-candidacy policy and wait for 

Senator Dirksen was also mentioned 
by several students as a good candi- 
date if he could possibly be nomin- 
ated. However, they feel that Dirk- 
sen's old age and the public's fear 
of the President's health will not mix. 

There are also several top Republi- 
can whom most -students feel are 
"out" of the nomination. This group 
consists of Goldwaer, '64 nominee- 
Governor Nelson Rockefeller, because 
of recent public dissatisfaction — 
Scranton of Pennsylvania, who made 
an unsuccessful bid for '64 nominee- 
Henry Cabot Lodge, and former New 
Representative Bill Miller, who 
ran on Goldwater's unsuccessful '64 

WhocMT the 1968 Republican pres- 
idential nominee will be, he should 
provide quite a close race for the 
ratic nominee and even a pos- 
sible victory! Watch and see how 
Centenary opinion compares with the 
final answer to our question at the 
Republican convention next summer. 

To the Editor: 

Suzanne Keller has done a fine 
job with the "of Louisiana" part of 
the history of the Centenary College 
of Louisiana in her article, "Centenary 
History Contains Much to Inspire Stu- 
dent Pride", which appeared in the 
11th. She covered half our story in 
our origins in the state-supported Col- 
lege of Louisiana very well. 

Miss Keller's complete omission of 
our Centenary-Methodist heritage, lest 
we forget, deserves correction as an 
addendum or better perhaps as a pre- 
face. The Centenary part of the his- 
tory of the College began in Missis- 
sippi when the Methodist Church 
established a college first at Clinton, 
and later at Brandon Springs as a part 
of the 1839 centennial celebration of 
the beginnings of Methodism in Eng- 
land. We can well be proud of both 
our college ancestors, Centenary Col- 
lege and the College of Louisiana. We 
should also be proud of our over 125 
year connection with the Methodist 
Church, an institution which has us- 
ually been a leader in the develop- 
ment of education and academic free- 
dom, and which specifically has 
guided the progress of the Centenary 
College of Louisiana since the mar- 
riage of our two ancestor colleges in 

Very sincerely yours, 
Charles W. Harrington 
Head Librarian 

Editor Note: Miss Keller in- 
cluded this part and much more 
in her story but it was cut for 
lack of space. 

To the Editor: 

Of special interest will be the 
chapel program scheduled for 10:40 
a.m. on December 1. At that time, 
the selections for Centenary's repre- 
sentatives for WHO'S WHO IN 
VERSITIES will be announced. 

Also, this will be the occasion of 
the first address to the student body 
by Dean Thad Marsh, Dean of the 
College. Since this will be Dean 
Marsh's first official appearance be- 
fore the students of Centenary, we 
would like very much to have a good 
representation, even though seniors 
are not required to attend this chapel. 

Remember, too that the Centenary 
College Choir will present its annual 
Christmas concert in chapel on De- 
cember 15. As it always has been, this 
will be an exceptionally fine pro- 
gram — one you won't want to missl

A Weakly Column 

Well devoted disciples of liberalartism, you've done it again! 
Last week after taxing our little brain to the ultimate extent of its 
nastiness, we managed to come up with only ten meager suggestions 
for improvement of life by the S.S.B. (Sleepy silver bayou). If you 
will refer to our past effort, you will notice that in lines forty-four 
through forty-seven, we urged you to send any gripes or suggestions 
to us in care of the Conglomerate. At the time or this writing, we 
have received NOT ONE from any of you in the struggling mass. 
The ONLY suggestions we received were given to us personally by 
one of the layout editors (Wouldn't you like to know what they 
really do?) of the Conglomerate. 

Centenary student, YOU are being chastized! Is it so difficult 
to write down one or two of your thoughts and send them to the 
newspaper office? One of the chief problems that we face in writing 
this column is die dilemma of not knowing what the Centenary 
student-at-large wants in the way of improvement. We constantly 
hear suggestions from officers of the Student Government Associa- 
tion, but we never hear anything from any one of the other 1,087 
of you. (That's counting sixteen S.G.A. officers out of the total 
enrollment of 1,103.) This same gripe goes for the other S.F.O's 
(Student Frustration Outlets) on campus. Isn't it fun hearing the 
same people spout off every time we have an Issues and Opinions 
session? Oh, by the way, the Roving Eye sends his pat-on-the-back 
this week to the Reverend Kenneth Paul for having the guts to 
speak out last Tuesday. Hosana and Gloria in Excelsis, Ken! 

As for the suggestions we received from the layout editor: 

1. Whom should we appoint as zookeeper on the second 
floor of the library? 

2. Wouldn't it be nice to know what the student senate does 
on Wednesday nights? 

These are fairly good points for consideration. Why not station 
a library employee on the second floor? It would open up another 
job for students on campus, and it would place a much-needed 
information desk on the second floor. (Isn't it fun running up and 
down the library stairs fifteen times just to get the information 
you need to find one two-page article?) As for the second sugges- 
tion, we honestly would like to know why the Conglomerate no 
longer publishes the proceedings of the student senate meetings. 
The minutes of a meeting may not make for the most inetresting 
reading, but at least they keep us informed! 

We are challenging you to send in your personal irritations. 
As a starting point for a future column, we are offering you the 

In a recent publication by Shelley Berman titled Cleans and 
Dirties, (Price-Stem-Sloane, 1966) the author sets forth a collection 
of popular euphemisms that has evolved through America's reluct- 
ance to call a spade a spade. His point of inspiration was the 
Madison Avenue habit of calling toilet paper "bathroom tissue" 
instead of toilet paper. Thus, he writes, "Bathroom tissue is a clean; 
toilet paper is a dirty." This method of classification is not limited 
to objects. States of mind can be categorized (e.g. "Happy is a clean; 
gay is a dirty.") as can personality traits. ("Wood sprite is a clean; 
fairy is a dirty.") 

We contend that this method of classification can be applied 
to our life by the S.S.B. F'rinstance, ever notice how Kiss is a clean, 
while grub is a dirty? Or we can go the proper name route: Jack 
Stauffer Wilkes is a clean; Jack S. Wilkes is a dirty. Get the idea? 
Now that you have the hang of it. why not try your hand at thinking 
up some Gleans and Dirties for good ole Nary? You have the chal- 
lenge— now let's get on it, gang!

Social Revolutionary Presents 
Pertinent Observations, Ideas 

When Saul Alinsky, professional revolutionary social organizer, spoke here on November 8th, he 
awarded to Centenary many memorable quips and observations during his Forums Committee-spon- 
sored presentation. Reproduced here, for all future historians who may happen upon this issue of 
The Conglomerate, are some of the best, or worst, depending. 

The Bomb " One of the worst Fraternities- - -" From Stanford to 

things with the A Bomb was not the Princeton, from Berkeley to Dart- 

fact that it was dropped, but that it 
was dropped on the wrong place. It 
should have been dropped on Berlin 
instead of on Hiroshima." 

Conflict- - -" In a free society, dis- 
cord and controversy are really the 
meat and blood of that kind of life. 
Conflict is the very cradle of every- 
thing creative." 

Dating- - -" When a guy takes a 
girl out on a date, his interest at that 
point is not in marrying her, you 
know, the first date." 

Fellowships- - -" The university 
Graduate Social Science Fellowship, 
which was their richest fellowship and 
a choice one, was awarded to me in 
Criminology. If it had been awarded 
to me in Sewer Cleaning I would have 
taken it." 

The Founding Fathers- - -" Names 
like Politics of Aristotle, or Machiavel-

all through the Constitution, were as

numerous other awards, the Academy 
Award for the Best Foreign Film of 
1956. It was the Grand Prize Winner 
of the Venice International Film 

December 11, the French film, 
Sundays and Cybele, directed by 
Serge Bourguignon, will be presented. 
In Bourgiugnon's own words, he seeks 
to portray in this film "the conflict 
between the cynical world and the 
pure in heart." (Film Quarterly). The 
film also deals with man's conflicts 
between emotion and intellect, intui- 
tion and reason, aesthetics and science, 
and the sacred and secular. Sundays 
and Cybele received the Academy 
Award for Best Foreign Film of 1962. 

Ikiru, a Japanese film, will be pre- 
sented January 15. Under the direc- 
tion of Akira Kurosawa, the film was 
listed among the Ten Best Films of 
1959 (British Film Critics) and the 
Ten Best Films of 1960 (New York 
Times, Time, and Saturday Review). 

The U.S. film chosen for the series 
is High Noon. Directed by Fred Zen- 
neman and starring Gary Cooper, this 
is the story of "an individual who 
finds himself standing alone against 
the crowd. The picture deals with the 
effect of fear and compromise on a 
community." (Emilc G. McAnaey and 
H Williams, The Filmviewers Hand- 
book). High Noon will be shown Feb- 
ruary 19.

Freshmen. Varsity Meet 
In Season's First Contest 

Monday night, the Centenary College Gents will take on this year's Freshman team in the annual 
Freshman-Varsity Basketball Game in Haynes Gym. This will be the first game either team will play. 
The game Monday night will give the students and general public their only chance to see either 
team before the regular season begins Decmber 1st. 

This year's game will be a little they were able to score 10-12 points in 


unique. It will be a meeting of two 
opposites. The Freshmen will have a 
definite height advantage over the 
varsity. The Varsity will counter this 
advantage by running hard and hop- 
ing to run the Freshmen into the 

This may well be a good year for 
the Freshmen as far as this game 
goes. Last Saturday, the two teams 
had a scrimmage and there is a rumor 
going around that the Freshmen beat 
the Varsity. Also, Monday the Var- 
sity had another scrimmage and at 
times things looked weak. They had 
several dry spells during the afternoon 
when baskets were few and far be- 
tween. There were other times when 



The aches and groans have begun to subside somewhat over 
the past few days and it appears that the Centenary College 
gridders are ready to get down to serious business. As is customary 
and necessary with any athletic team, the first week of practice 
was primarily directed to conditioning exercises and the results 
could be seen and heard around the dorms about 6:00 p.m each 

About 50 boys showed up for the beginning of practice Nov. 8; 
this number has not fluctuated to any great degree even with 
the strenuous training. In addition to Coaches Sanford and Lester 
the gridders have been aided by the leadership of Charles Ragus' 
who starred at NSC and later with the Kansas City Chiefs of the 
AFL; Sammy Joe Odom, also of NSC; and Rusty Griffith. 

It is evident at the practices that the spirit is very high and 
also that Centenary has in its midst several top-notch ball players 
who did not participate in intramurals, but are eager to play in a 
true game of football. 

Every Centenary student should put a star on his calendar 
for Sunday, December 4, because the way things are shaping up 
SPAR Stadium will be the scene of a fine football game. 


Congratulations are in order to the top teams who competed

Senate - - Keep It Up 

After attending this week's Senate meeting (which lasted two 
hours), I have the following observation. Although they may have 
bungled the first of the football game preparations, they are now 
working like crazy to make the game a success. 

Besides alloting over $1,500 to the game, each Senate member 
is working on various aspects of the game to make sure which our 
team goes on the field everything will be ready. From selling tickets 
and programs to taking tickets at the gate, from acquiring an ambu- 
lance to securing transportation for students, the Senate is making 
every possible effort. 

WHAT IS IMPORTANT! ! ! The game is on. The Senate is 
working full steam. The players are ready. ARE YOU? 

Go. Attend the game and support the team— this effort of the 
student body.

Library Hours 

As explained in the letter from Mr. Harrington, Head Librarian, 
to the Student Senate, the Library hours are now back on then- 
regular schedule. 

Even though the extension could "well be justified on the 
basis of student interest and use," there were serious problems. 

The Conglomerate would like to thank the Library staff and 
the Faculty Library Committee for allowing the trial period and 
hope that they will do, as Mr. Harrington suggested, consider the 
possible extension when some of these problems can be corrected. 

The Library has and will continue to be the center of the 
academic life or this colleeg, and as we strive to increase this life 
we must also strive to broaden the availability of the center. More 
and more each year the stock of the Library resources increases. 
As a result more time can and must be spent in searching out 
information— in serious study. 

Students found the late hours to be a welcome relief from the 
pressures of the dorm and the limited "evening" hours of the 
Library. The late hours were a boone to those with research papers, 
those needing a place away to study, a place where concentrated 
academic effort was encouraged and not hindered. 

True, the late hours would have proven a greater help later 
this semester and before finals however, since this was a novel 
experiment, the library was not set to handle the continuation this 

The Conglomerate would like to encourage future consideration 
"I i |» i in. in. -nt extension of the hours. Students want it and, as the 
qualit) and quantity of the academic load increases, they must have 
il to meel thi ini leased needs of resource matrials and true acade- 
mic research.

A Weakly Column 

Mr. Dick Grisham 
Student Senate 
Dear Mr. Grisham: 

The Library thanks you and the 
members of the Student Senate for 
your cooperation in the experiment 
with the midnight closing hours for 
the Library from Sunday through 
Thursday and the extended hours on 
Friday evening. The Friday evening 
extension has been definitely aban- 
doned because of the lack of student 

Although the extension of library 
hours to midnight on the proposed 
evenings can well be justified on the 
basis of student interest and use, this 
extension of hours creates a number 
of serious problems for the Library 
concerning the supervision of the 
building, building security, the best 
uses for available funds and staff, and 
the general purposes the Library is 
intended to serve. In view of these 
problems, the Faculty Library Com- 
mittee, is consultation with the three 
college deans and the Library depart- 
ment heads, recommended last Friday 
that "the Library return to its old 
schedule which calls for closing at 
10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 
and 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday 
while school is in session during the 
regular academic year." The Library 
will follow this recommendation, 
which went into effect Monday, 
November 28. 

The desires of the students for a 
suitable place to study after 10 p.m. 
will continue to be of concern to the 
Library, the faculty, and the admin- 
istration. It is understood that the 
administration plans to provide class- 
room space for late study immediate- 
ly. Further, the library is working on 
plans for the development of the 
collection and the expansion of staff 
next year. The improvement of library 
service and the possible extension of 
hours will certainly be considered in 
these general development plans. 

The Library also wishes to thank 
you and the Senate for your con- 
tinuing interest and help in the prob- 
lem of library noise. Your suggestions 
concerning the restriction of the use 
of the library by pre-college students 
last spring helped solve one phase of 
this problem. Your new program to 
promote student self-discipline in the 
library has been very effective during 
the past two to three weeks. Library 
noise is a problem which requires 
continuous vigilance. We appreciate 
your help and look forward to your 
continued assistance in this matter, 
as well as in any other matters of 
mutual interest that may arise in the 

Very sincerely yours, 
Charles W. Harrington

F.T. - 


Well, sports fans, dig out your raccoon coats, stadium blankets, 
and hip flasks, we're gonna have a little game! After the anxious 
weeks of angry uncertainty, the plans (???) for the football game 
with Loyola have been finalized. Well, at least they've been made 
as final as the student government association ever makes anything. 
With a finesse harkening back to the memorable indecision of 
former president Eisenhower, the Senate decreed Monday morning 
that absolutely, finally, definitely, irrevocably, beyond any shadow 
of a doubt, we might have a football game Sunday. 

We thought you might be interested in hearing some of the 
choice comments that happened to be flying about during the 
various periods of uncertainty in the past few weeks. They are all 
attributable to members of the Student Senate and the Football 
Team. (To be noted S.S. and F.T., respectively, if not respectfully.) 
F.T. — You people on the Student Senate have not done your 
job! This whole thing has been one of the most poorly 
handled things I've ever seen! 

What do you mean? The reports we've been getting 
have been that the entire thing was in great shape! 
Reports you've been getting? How could you get any 
reports? Not a #°%& one of you Student Senate people 
has even taken the time or trouble to come out to our 
practices to see what has been going on! 
But Coy Stringbean has been telling us that you were 
getting the uniforms from Bossier, and that the Jaycees 
were going to help us foot the bill for the stadium. 
Well, it's not true. Loyola has been practicing in pads 
of over a month now. Those boys are big and rough. 
Thy 're mean! How are we gonna go out there and play 
a decent ball game if we can't get the pads to practice 
with? We can't do it! 

Well, we hope we don't have to call off the game. 
F.T. - Cal loff the game? How are you gonna explain calling 
off theg ame to some of these boys who've been out 
there practicing all this time? We've had boys get hurt 
bad out there— one of them even broke his nose! How 
How are you gonna explain it to them? 
But what else can we do? If we can't get the equip- 
ment, we can't play! 

You can't do nothin'. And the way you've bungled this 
job, I wouldn't trust the student senate to do nothin". 
I'm goin' over to Minden this afternoon to ask them for 
some help, and I'm takin' this letter from President 
Wilkes authorizin' me to borrow the necessary equip- 

Well, shouldn't we set some sort of deadline on hearing 
from you so we'll know whether or not to call off the 

Yeah. If you don't hear from me by five o'clock Wed- 
nesday night, we'll have to call it off. And you betteer 
hope for your sake that we get those uniforms! If you 
have to call off this game, we'll boycott the rest of the 
Student Senate functions lor this year! 
(With fear and trembling) O.K.. we'll just wait until 
we hear from you. 
And that's the way it went for a while. Then the deadline was 
moved up to Fridav. Nothing then, so the deadline was changed to 
Monday morning. Then, finaly, the F.T. was able to report that it 
had secured uniforms from North Caddo High School. Full speed 

One more memorable comment overhead short!) before the 
\lon.la\ morning session: "What am I gonna do if we have to call 
off the earn.-' Warren Lowe is bigger than I am. He'll beat me upl" 
s.i sports fans, that's how it stands. Will the game actuall) be 
Dlayed Sunday? Well, we think so. but we can't say for sure. Hang 
loose everybody. _ The Roving Eye

Many problems have arisen in pre- 
paring for this game. Securing uni- 
forms, deciding upon a stadium in 
which to play, and locating officials 
to referee are some of the task'- that 
have plagued the committee in charge 
of the game for these last few weeks. 
It was not until Monday of this week 
that it was definite that the game 
would be held. 

Another problem which will remain 
is the conflict of a pro-game on T.V. 
and church, which will reduce Gent 
game attendance. But the gr 
problem which exists is budgeting of 
the game. Every possible expense is 
being cut down. 

Russell Griffith, head coach, said 
diis week, "I know if the students 
back the boys 100%, they can expect 
a good game from the players." He 
was proud of the progress the team 
has made and of their fine spirit. The 
assistant coaches are Steve Murphy 
and Sammy Odom.

The Methodist Student Movement 
showed the film "Lord of the Flies," 
a movie from the book by William 
Golding last night at 5:30 p.m. in 
Room 114 of Mickle Hall. 

The author of the book said, "The 
theme is an attempt to trace the de- 
fects of society- back to the defects 
of human nature. The moral is that 
the shape of a society must depend on 
the ethical nature of the individual 
and not on any political system, how- 
ever apparently logical or respectable. 
The whole book is symbolic in nature, 
except the rescue in the end where 
adult life appears dignified and cap- 
able, but in reality enmeshed in the 
same evil as the symbolic life of the 
children in the island." 

Kenyon Review said of the book, 
"Evil is inherent in the human mind 
itself, whatever innocence may cloak 
it . . . This is Colding's theme, and 
it takes on a frightful force by being 
presented in juvenile terms."

Brave Men Die, produced and nar- 
rated by Fulton Lewis 111 and Donald

position to United States policy in 
Vietnam, exposing what a club official 
called "far-left and communist manip- 
ulation of naive student movements." 
Twenty-five persons were present 
in Mickle Hall 114 as Chairman Rick 
Cummins welcomed visitors and in- 
troduced the program. During the 
discussion period following the film. 
Taylor Caffery related his experiences 
with similar anti-Vietnam demonstra-

At the Ad Hoc Committee meeting 
on November 19th, the members be-

each of the two men's dorms should 
attend the next meeting to present the

<■ in lay, December 2, 1966 



Many people say basketball is a game of inches and this was 
very evident last Monday night in the Freshman-Varsity game 
played in Haynes gym. The inches were absent as far as the varsity 
was concerned, and this was the difference in the game. To my 
knowledge, this was the first time in the brief history of these 
battles that the "hairless wonders" have come out on the winning 
end, and they are certainly to be congratulated. 

The Gents are small, as everybody knows, but they will be 
playing a brand of ball this year that will be exciting and fast- 
moving. Due to their lack of size, they will be forced to rely on a 
run-and-shoot type of offense and a tenacious pressing defense, 
which makes for a very exciting game. With the loss of such big 
men as All-American Tom Kerwin, Barry Haynie, Larry Shoemaker, 
and Harold Smith, the Gents will find themselves in an unfamiliar 
situation, but they have several very fine guard candidates, includ- 
ing probably the best duo to hit the Nary campus in many years- 
Larry Ward and John Blankenship. 

Centenary probably won't come through the season with a 
really outstanding won-lost record, but fans should keep in mind 
that the Gent's schedule includes some of the finest basketball teams 
in the United States. When you have a team which is definitely in 
the rebuilding stages facing weekly competition of the likes of 
Cincinnati, St. Joseph, Ole Miss, University of Houston, and Okla- 
homa City, to mention only a few, then you can't look for outstand- 
ing results. One thing is for certain, though; the Gents are quick and 
fast, and they might just surprise some of these powerhouses. 
It would be a shame to not be there when it happens. 

One final note on the Freshman-Varsity game. As is easily 
visible to spectators, the Freshmen lost their "locks" prior to this 
annual affair, as somewhat of a sign of their inferiority to the varsity. 
Having been in their same shoes only three years ago, it seems 
only fair to me that in the event of a Freshman victory in the future, 
the varsity should be made to part with their curls as a sign of

Freshmen "Squeeze" By Varsity 
With 5 Seconds On The Clock 

In the 9th annual freshmen-varsity game, the freshmen did something that no other freshmen 
team had done in Centenary's history— they beat the varsity. The game shaped up to be a game of 
speed versus height, but the speed did not seem to help the varsity. The freshmen not only out- 
rebounded the varsity 63 to 36, but contained the varsity's speed for an 81 to 79 victor) 
The first half was a slowed down at 68-68. After the lead exchanged 

type of game with the freshmen lead- 
ing at intermission 35-30. The second 
half started fast and furious with the 
varsity opening up with a full-court 
press. The press seemed to rattle the 
freshmen only momentarily as they 
kept their composure and worked 
through the zone. The varsity did 
manage to catch up, and tied the score 

hands several times, the varsity final- 
ly took the lead with 11 seconds. 
With 5 seconds remaining, under- 
classmen Mike Tebbe was fouled and 
made the first of a one and one to 
tie the score. When Tebbe missed the 
second shot, Don Wills shoved the 
ball in for the ■ dge Uthough the 
varsity did manage to call time out, 

\\ aid's desperation shot was in vain, 

Scoring honors went to the varsity's

As graphically symbolized by the print on 
the front page, the star represented hope to those 
trapped by social conventions and mores nearly 
2000 years ago. It heralded the change which 
was to ensue— a liberation to the truth— a new- 
testament. As Centenary celebrates Christmas 
1966, there too is a star of hope upon which 
she now gazes— CLIMAX 75. 

Climax .75 is, in simplest terminology, a 
1 1 irid-raising campaign for the next ten years. 
It is, however, much more. It is an evaluation 
of the past of the college and a blueprint for 
the future. 

The name of the fund has an inherent two- 
fold meaning. First would be in reference to the 
year 1975, the completion date of the drive. This 
is, by no mere coincidence, the date of the 150th 
year which Centenary College has served the 
nation, the state, mankind. The second reference 
is to the word climax. Webster defines climax 
as "the highest point, culmination." So the aim 
is for us to pay homage to the past of Centenary 
by reaching a pinnacle. But what pinnacle— one 
of social prominence, most beautiful buildings, 
most exclusive in the South? To arrive at a 
goal the administration studied in great depth 
the purpose of Centenary College. Their analy- 


I" accomplish this goal. Climax 75 calls 
l«'i over $20 million in contributions by 1975. 
The distribution of these funds is approximately 
equal between the endowment fund to insure 
continuing revenue and physical facilities. The 
expenditure "I the mom j is delineated to various 
projecl "i academii areas with the single pur- 

m i 1 i" secure a quality student body 

and i ii ultj

the basil realization ol Climax 75 is Centenary 

si nut jusl foi change, imr just for 

survival, but to fulfill its purpose as an educa- 
tional institution Vs I l< an Marsh hinted in Ins 
address last week tins college must have as its 

to I me the besl liberal arts college in 

the South This is nol mat al idealism but a 

rather realistic approach - one toward which 
< liinas 75 is oriented. 

lo those who question or fear tins change 
there is one stark fa< t died "experimen- 

tation" which we undertake will be in a pro< 
ol catching up rather than forging alie.nl l 
the fa ! \ it stands now , when om- 

pared to outstanding small liberal arts , 

■ em as tied m the wrappings ol archaii and 

unimaginative academic programs as a state 

We have a honor system but question our 
own honesty to the extent that we fear an exten- 
sion—other outstandingly successful schools ex- 
tend it into socia lareas. We fear the trial of a 
voluntary interim program, yet other schools 
have mandatory systems which are recognized 
throughout the nation as tremendously boosting 
the academic atmosphere. We have a beautiful 
library, yet we cannot seem to keep it open 
when the students most need it. 

The words "different" and "change" have 
been known to shatter glass at 100 yards on the 
college campus. We are so extremely crystalline 
that when some proposal is made, the ensuing 
tirades are not factual pros or cons concerning 
the proposal itself, but rather emotional reason- 
ing for the "status quo." Nor is this "fragile" 
quality limited to the faculty. Consideration of 
the substitution in the men's dorms of faculty 
"housefathers" for "housemothers" resulted in 
volumes of thick dissertations on "souther 
womanhood," "home away from home," every- 
thing but apple pie and the American flag. Few 
considered the facts. 

The fact is that the future of Centenary 
College which Climax 75 outlines is anything 
but frightening. It visualizes an academic com- 
munity with the highest caliber of both students 
and faculty striving together for a common goal- 
liberation to the truth. It visualizes a faculty 
which is both intellectually and financially en- 
couraged to excell, to communicate, to teach, 
to learn. It visualizes facilities which furnish 
not just the barest necessities, but rather an 
abundance of academic aid. It visualizes a stu- 
dent body not inherently afarid of the truth, 
but inherently filled with the desire to learn, 
to excell, to do the most rather than the least. 
It visualizes such an open and compelling 
academii atmosphere that students nor faculty 
can hide No longer will a person be abli 
gel a degree and not be the better for it.

Some four hundred responding spectators, whose spirits refused 
to be lessened by the inoportune weather conditions, sparsely filled 
the west side of State Fair Stadium last Sunday. The attendance 
was superb considering several factors: the rain and cold, Don 
Meridith and the Dallas Cowboys, the non-support of the citizenry 
of Shreveport, the indefinite publicity and promotion, the lack of 
foresight and united effort of the Student Senate, the absence of 
adequate preparation that is essential in enabling thirty athletes to 
perform as a unit, and the skepticism of many members of the 
student body. 

The attenders witnessed a football 
scrimmage that found Centenary shut- 
out by a much superior team from 
Loyola University by a score of 42-0. 
These faithful partisans witnessed 
this college's first venture into inter- 
collegiate play in nineteen years, and 
may well have seen the last such en- 
terprise in the conceivable future. 

The Loyola team which appeared to 
be almost entirely built around rem- 
nants of dominate lesuit of New Or- 
leans championship prep squads was 
at no time in jeopardy throughout 
the afternoon. The sensational quarter- 
backing of Johnny Frank plus the all 
around play of such gridders as Chuck 
Rogers, Dick and Bob Marino, and 
Bill Krummel were no match for the 
unexperienced Centenary eleven. 
These visitors from New Orleans had 
been playing as a team for the past 
months and their consistently fine 
play was painfully evident. 

Playing in equipment obtained 
through the courtesy of North Caddo 
High School, the Gent squad gave 
their best determined effort. However, 
gallant this effort may have been, it 
could in no way overcome the obvious 
realization that this team was under 
no circumstances prepared to chal- 
lenge Loyola's veteran team. 

Throughout most of the first half, 
however, the Gents looked surprising- 
ly confident and capable, allowing 

Loyola a lone touchdown and conver- 
sion in the first quarter. Nevertheless, 
with less than two minutes remaining 
in the first half the inevitable oc- 
curred. Loyola's quarterback hit two 
of speedy ends with passes in the 
Centenary end zone. In less than 
ninety seconds Loyola had put four- 
teen more points on the scoreboard 
and were unchallenged for the re- 
mainder of the game. 

There were some gratifying mo- 
ments, however, that dreary after- 
noon. Such was the case with fullback 
Dwayne Palmer's superlative punting. 
This Leesville veteran booted the foot- 
ball for a very respectable 36 yard 
average per punt. Other Gents who 
played outstanding football Sunday 
were defensive stalwarts John Lamb, 
Jay Stewart, and Jonathan Cook. 

Offensively the Gents were com- 
pletely stymied. There were obvious 
timing irregularies, primarily due to 
the insufficient practice factor. Only 
once was Centenary a scoring threat, 
but here again this opportunity was 
realized by Loyola mistakes and ma- 
jor penalties. Surprising though, the 
Gents had very few penalties called 
against them. Playing impressive of- 
fensive football for the Gents were 
both quarterbacks Warren Lowe and 
John Smith, plus halfbacks Mac Grif- 
fith, Reed Yates and Charlie Parks.

ANNE FRANK, "DIARY" (14 years old) 



Well, here it is again — your favorite time of the year! The 
joyous climax of the collegiate year — Dead Week! Dead Week is 
a time of relaxing preparation for the eagerly-awaited, stimulating 
mental challenges soon to be faced. These challenges (often called 
finals) are very popular with Centenary students. In fact. Final 
Week activities probably draw a larger percentage of student par- 
ticipation than any other school-sponsored event. (This includes 
dances, movies, classes, etc.) Let's take a look at a few of the activi- 
ties coming up during this exciting week. You'll want to take part in 
as many as possible. 

One of the big social features of 
the week is Breakfast. This is usually 
held early every morning. (Morning is 
generally characterized by the first 
part of daylight, if you get confused.) 
Dress is very, very informal — kind 
of a "come-as-you-really-are" affair. 
However, etiquette is extremely im- 
portant at this party. Here's a run- 
down on the proper procedure: Stag- 
ger groggily from your dorm to the 
cafeteria, tripping a few times if you 
want to. (Try to be original here and 
there.) You must have a glassy stare on 
your face, and of course you'll want 
to have those attractive bluish-purple 
bags under your eyes. (Greenish-blue 
will do, but they're really "out" this 
year.) Carry a stack of disorganized 
notes and a blue book or two. Shuffle 

these and stare at them whenever 
anyone is looking, especially if it is a 
professor. If, by some strange twist of 
fate, anyone happens to smile at you 
and say "Good Morning," do not hit 
them! This is severly frowned upon in 
most circles Mumbling sdmething 
under your breath, however, is per- 
missible. It's really best to say just 
"Morning." in recognition of the time 
of day. Now, once you get through 
the mob that will be attending this 
party, you will reach the refreshment 
area. There are two important rules 
to remember here: (1) Don't take more 
than ten cups of coffee at a time. 
If you do, the last few cups you try 
to drink will be cold. You'll just have 
to make a second trip if you want 
more coffee. (Walking will become 

surprisingly easier after the first ten 
cups.) (2) Don't ask what the white 
things with the yellow centers are. 
You'll just make it obvious how long 
it's been since you've attended a 
Breakfast. After you have been served, 
go on to the tables in the game area. 
Join the group that is playing your 
own favorite game. Some of the 
games to be played are Watch the 
Clock, Gulp Your Food, Shuffle Your 
Notes, Sleep the Longest, Complain 
the Loudest, and Giggle the Most for 
the Stupidest Reason. Just let yourself 
go and have a really fabulous time! 

Probably the most frequent parties 
arc the cram sessions. These are held 
at all hours of the day and night. Re- 
freshments include cokes, coffee, and 
No Doz. Entertainment at these get- 
togethers usually consists of several 
contests, with awards given to the 
winners. For example, the Rationaliz- 
ation Award goes to the person who 
can best convince himself and one 
other person that he will do better 
on a final if he takes a "little nap" 
instead of studying. He tells himself 
that he'll have a better chance if he 
goes into the test with a clear head. 
The Better Left Unsaid Award goes to 

the first smart aleck to point out that 
"clear" and "blank" are often synony- 
mous. The Urgc-to-Kill Trophy goes 
to the A-student who just looks over 
his notes and then hops into bed for 
the night. The Understatement of the 
Year Award goes to anyone who tells 
you, "You look tired." This award also 
goes to any freshman who says, "I've 
heard that finals are pretty bad." The 
coveted Cram Session Award itself 
goes to anyone who has two tests on 
the same day but who can't start 
studying for the second one until the 
first one is over because he's afraid 
he'll forget everything he learned for 
the first one. The Ferocity Award 
goes to the person who makes the 
most threatening Do Not Disturb sign. 
Congratulations go to anyone who 
carries out his threats. The Response 
of the Year Award goes to any female 
dorm student who answers every hello 
with, "This is an oral warning." Other 
awards will be presented if achieve- 
ment merits them. 

lust remember that these two weeks 
of fun only come once a semester. 
Enjoy them while you can! But don't 
have too much fun, or semester break 
will be a tremendous letdown.

Continuing the year's theme "Per- 
spectives on a Revolutionary Age" 
the Student Senate Forums Committee 
has contracted five nationally and 
internationally known speakers for the 
spring semester 

innovator, philosopher, critic and 
novelist Colin Wilson, one of Britain's 
most colorfid literary figures, will ap- 
pear Feb. 14-15 to speak on the topic 
"The Revolution in Literature." Wil- 
son says of Ins lecture subji 
speak of my own novels and projected 
work, of my attitude to writing and 
my conception of the writer's task, 
and of my personal conviction that the 
novelist has become too self-indulgent 
and has come to misconceive the 
whole business of communication." 

Descriln-d as "a speaker who can't 
he nist summed up, categorised and 
forgotten." philosopher Henry Rugbec 

will come to Centenary March 2 to 

speak on the topic "What Is Existent- 
ial Thought 3 " Educated at Princeton

other books in the Centenary library. 

Vibrant young social critic William 
Coffin will be perhaps the most 
controversial of the Forums speakers 
for the semester. As University Chap- 
lain at Yale. Coffin has stirred con- 
siderable controversy with his activity 
in \arious social and political reform 
groups. To lx- at Centenary April 11- 
13. Coffin will discuss "The Student 
and the N lity." 

Late April is the date for the final

"I have neither given nor* ♦ ♦" 

Probably everyone at Centenary realizes his 
responsibility under our honor system, in so far 
as it requires first "neither giving nor receiving 
aid on examinations," and secondly, reporting any 
violation of this. 

Idealistically speaking, if each student ac- 
cepted his full responsibility to the honor system, 
the second clause of the pledge would be irrele- 
vant and unnecessary. Realistically speaking, how- 
ever, there are a few who do not do their share. 
These few students break the code and further 
undermine the system by not reporting their in- 
fractions. And when another student is aware of 
such a case and does not report it, he is just as 
guilty as the offender. 

Our honor system is a way of life, a form 
of government. In a college community, rules are 
a necessity; and they require some form of en- 
forcement. Our only check is personal honor. If 
one's personal sense of honor is not strong enough 
to motivate obeying the rules or recognizing 
failure to obey them, the personal honor of an- 
other student must come to the rescue. In such 
a case, encouraging the dishonest student to re- 
port himself is the very least that can be done, 
and essentially, we have agreed to do this just as 
we have agreed to live according to other college 

The system will remain effective only as long 
as each student accepts his responsibility to its 
preservation. For it is only in responsibility that 
our honor system is possible; to ignore the re- 
sponsibility is to endanger the freedom we now 

To ignon t!,, responsibility is to also en- 
er the possibility of extension of the system. 

Widespread reports of dishonesty in American 
colleges and universities are distressing. And daily 
news reports inform us of "a breakdown in honor 
across the nation." At a time when many cry that 
there is no honor, however, we at Centenary 
should be proud of our honor system. It certainly 
will be perpetuated, and it can be extended, ex- 

As students, let us continue to realize and 
to accept our responsibilities under the honor 
system. Personal integrity. . . Obligations to fellow 
students. . . Loyalty to the system. . . 

As we do this, we will become equipped to 
do our part in restoring honor to our land. In 
fact, we will have already begun that restoration.

The possibility of "honors finals??" 

A suggested idea, originated by the senate 
curriculum committee would have allowed seniors 
in 300 and 400 courses greater freedom (a choice 
of time and place) in taking final examinations. 
The proposal, unfortunately, was voted down by 
the faculty. 

Most assuredly, a sense of honor does not 
spring up over night. In a sense, it takes years of 
constant protection, nurture, and enforcement. 
The administration and faculty, however, can do 
much to foster its growth — by enforcement of 
the system, of course, and more important, by 
giving the students an opportunity to prove them- 
selves. Our honor system is ready for expansion 
on a controlled level. And, hopefully, the ground- 
work has been laid. 


Described as "the only worthy successor to 
Orwell, D. H. Lawrence, and Aldous Huxley that 
England has produced," Colin Wilson is that 
"rara avis," a really self-made writer. 

Born in Leicester, England, in 1931, he left 
school at 16 to continue his education in class- 
rooms of his own choosing. His interests had 
been scientific, but after reading the poetry of 
T. S. Eliot, he began to write plays, short stories, 
essays and poetry, supporting himself by a suc- 
cession of menial jobs. For a time he was on 
the staff of THE PARIS REVIEW, but in the 
summer of 1954 he took a nighttime job and 
by day sat in the British Museum and wrote 
"The Outsider." Two years later it was published, 
and Colin Wilson found himself an international 
celebrity and a writer to be reckoned with in 
the world of letters. 

One of the most exciting literary figures to 
appear in modern times, Colin Wilson will be 
at Centenary College for the first Forums pro- 
gram of the spring semester on February 14-15 
to speak on the topic "The Revolution in

New Classrooms 
Complete At Last 

When Centenary students return from the semester break, six 
new classrooms for business and social science classes will greet 

The new classrooms, as well as 12 
new offices, will be located in the 
basement of the library. The $60,000- 
project was started in the middle of 
August and encompasses 12,000 
square feet of space or the same 
amount of space as is covered in the 
main floor of the library including 
the lobby. 

Students will enter the building by 
three routes. The first is by a south 
door which opens onto a patio. On 
the north is an identical entrance. 
The third entrance is through the 
tunnel where only one of the many 
doors will be open. (See drawing next 
to story). 

The classrooms are numbered 
06-11, numbers 10 and 11 business 
and the others designated for 
social sciences. Electrical outlets have 
been fitted in room 10 for typing. 
[Tie room is sound-proofed. 

Each of two offices share a recep- 
tion room, and some have small 

closets. Furnishings for the offices are 
orange and black desks respectively, 
and the reception rooms are outfitted 
with pale green chairs. In the class- 
rooms there are 15 desks for left- 
handed students, the first such desks 
on the Centenary campus except for 
a few in the science building. 

According to head librarian Charles 
Herrington, the temporary classrooms 
will be used about ten years at which 
time the library will need the space. 
This is according to the plan originally 
mapped out when the library was 

The construction was under the di- 
rection of Aubrey A. McKelvey, Jr., 
architect It will keep hours independ- 
ent of library hours and the same as 
those of other buildings on campus. 

The opening of the new classrooms 
will almost coincide with the opening 
of the library, which was in February,

Senate Revue Of Past Year 
Indicates Realization of Goals 


The primary characteristic of this semester, in terms of the work of the Student Senate, is that 
it has been a period of implementation of plans made during the past year and of the extension of 
Senate concern into new areas. 

Of course, the initiation of the Stu- 
dent Activity Fee has made possible 
the expansion of all Senate sponsored 
programs. This is especially evident 
in the areas of Entertainment and 
Forums. During this semester the Sen- 
ate has sponsored a free Movie Series 
on Friday nights, featuring such mov- 
ies as Second Time Around and The 
Great Imposter. Big-name entertain- 
ment arranged for by the Senate En- 
tertainment Committee included the 
n Pickett Dance which conclud- 
ed Orientation Week, the concert by 
the Swingle Singers, and the Unique 
Dance s entertainment, 

for which plans are now being made, 
will feature a Homecoming Dance, a 
concert by Dionne Warwick, a per- 
formance I i. a magician,

After several weeks of discussion three 
recommendations were made to tin

Some alterations were made in the 
proposals. Finally these SUggi

in 300 and 400 level courses, 2) no

during "Dead Week." 3) Final Exam

ning on Saturday; no classes to be 
held on the Friday before. The only 
one of these su which was 

approved by the faculty referred to 
"Dead Week," and this policy will go 
into effect in the spring semester. The 
primary concern of the Curriculum 
Committee is now th> establishment 
of a Interim Program. Of course, this 
of program will require long- 
range planning, and at tl 
time only the groundwork can be laid.

Warwick Concert 
Scheduled For April 

The Centenary Student Senate will sponsor a concert April 18th 
featuring Dionne Warwick in Haynes Gymnasium. The concert will 
last approximately one and a half hours, featuring a variety of 
Miss Warwick's hit renditions. The Student Entertainment Com- 
mittee has recently signed the contract assuring her appearance 
at a cost of $3,000. Miss Warwick will appear on a Tuesday with 
her own band. 

Miss Warwick, an accomplished 
singer and pianist, began her musical 
career singing and playing in her 
church choir. From there, she went to 
recording studios in New York and 
sang in the background chorus on 
many recording sessions. Two leading 
songwriters noticed her talent and re- 
cruited her in her first recording and 
hit "Don't Make Me Over." 

Mi s Warwick, a native from New 
Jersey, has made several American 
and European tours. She has been in- 
ternationally recognized for her sensi- 
tive and emotional renditions featuring 
her voice, style, and personality. She 
has appeared twice at the Olympia 
Theater in Paris, December, 1963, and 
in January, 1966, where she recorded 
album. In April, 1964 she ap- 
1 uiili the International famous

Homecoming Brings 
Alums To Campus 

Friday, Feb. 17, will mark the beginning of Homecoming 1967 
at Centenary. With Alumni director Bob Durand expecting over 500 
alums to be in attendance, the activities will get under way at 
5:00 p.m. when the Gentlets meet the freshmen of the University 
of Southern Mississippi. 

Following the Frosh cage contest at 
Hirsch Youth Center, the Alumni will 
take the floor in the annual "Old Tim- 
ers Game" at 7:00 p.m. Then at 
7:45 pre-game festivities begin with 
the presentation of the Homecoming 
Queen and her court. Then at 8 p.m., 
the Gents will face the cagers from 
USM. Winding up the day's activi- 
ties will be a reception in the Natural 
Gas Building next to the Youth Center 
at 9:45 with student entertainment 
being provided. 

At 10:00 a.m. in the SUB Saturday 
morning, will be a faculty-student- 
alumni coffee followed by an Alumni 
business meeting in the Faculty 
Lounge at 11:00. A picnic luncheon 
will be held in the Amphitheatre and 
a band concert afterwards. From 
12:30 to 4:30 that afternoon will be 
an all campus open house. At 2:30, a 
special presentation, for Alumni only, 
will be given of "Great God Brown" 
in the Playhouse. 

The evening activities will get 
under way at 5:00 as a reunion of 
the classes of 1942 and 1957 will be 
held at the Petroleum Club of down- 
town Shreveport. 

The Shreveport Civic Center at 
7:00 p.m. will be the sight of the 
Alumni Banquet and Awards pro- 
gram. From 9 to 12, there will also 
be a dance at the Civic Center feat- 
uring entertainment from the variety 
review. Students and faculty are in- 
vited to attend the banquet and dance 

at the Center. However, the Senate 
recendy voted to sponsor a separate 
dance in Haynes Gymnasium from 8 
till 12. 

Homecoming weekend will end 
Sunday morning at 10:45 in Brown 
Chapel with a Special Alumni worship 

Alumni director Bob Durand has 
stressed that with the increase in 
Alumni interest this year, it is hoped 
the students will make efforts to be 
a part of all activities during the 
year's Homecoming. 


A fabulous three-week tour of 
Europe with the emphasis upon 
fun, youth, and low cost. 

That's how the 1967 Centenary 
Alumni Association European 
Tour, scheduled from July 19 
through August 9, is shaping up 
for this summer, according to 
Alumni Director Bob Durand. 

He said that "it appears as 
though the majority of those on the 
tour will be under 25, with many 
current students included. This is 
an ideal opportunity for Centenary 
students, because the only cheap 
feature of the trip is the cost." 

He emphasized, however, that 
space is limited and reservations 
are coming in fast. Any student 
interested in the Alumni Tour, 
which will cover ten European 
counries, should go by the Alumni 
Office in room 23 of the Admin- 
isration Building or call campus 
extension 308. 

Idea Proposed 
For Fall, 1967 

A program for a combined rush and 
orientation next fall has been pre- 
sented to the IFC and to the Pan- 
hellenic Council by Dean Aubrey For- 
rest. If adopted, the program will be- 
gin with next fall's freshmen. 

Basically the new schedule will in- 
volve orientation in the mornings and 
early afternoons, with rush beginning 
in late afternoon and continuing to 
midnight each day. The program will 
begin Sunday, September 3, and after 
two days of orientation, rush will be- 
gin. On Tuesday through Friday the 
freshmen will attend Math and Eng- 
lish classes in the mornings, and early

afternoons wil be devoted to discus-

just freshmen to what is expected of 
them in a college community. 

After rush begins late each after- 
noon, it will be conducted as it has 
been in the past. The freshmen men 
and and women will be divided 
into groups which will go with dif- 
ferent Greek organizations each night. 
For those freshmen not wishing to 
participate in rush, there will be mov- 
ies or other activities in the Sub. 

The week's program will end on 
Saturday wih preference parties, issu- 
ing of bids, and pledging. Registration 
will begin the following Tuesday.

Library Experiment Fails; 
No Plans For Revision 

No possibility of liberalized library hours is in sight, according 
to head librarian Charles Hi rrington, during the next semester be- 
i ause of a staffing problem. 

Herringtorj said recently that there 
had been no staff applicants for late 
library hours yet, but lli' re may be 

applicants for next year. He 
said that In- thought an adult needed 

hi the library to help students 
Find information. Already, there is no 
adult in the library on Saturday after- 
noons and Sunday. 

Actually, he said, the amount of 
people who used the library on Friday 
nights particularly did no! justify 
keeping it open. Only m\ to eight 
students were in the library at one 
time The library, which was kept 
open one Friday night in the recent 
experiment, is now open over 81 hours 


On the basis of the experiment, 
which also included keeping the libra- 
ry open until midnight on week nights 
for one month, the faculty library 
committee decided not to extend the 
experiment. The committee consists 
of Dr. Speairs, chairman; Gilbert 
Carp, Tom McNair, Dr. Overdyke, 
and Charles Hcmngton. 

Herrington is worried about the li- 
brary becoming a study hall rather 
than a library. He also said that once 
such a program is tin experiment is 
started, it will be hard to stop, and he 
to Ik- sure that such a program 
is justified before starting it.

O'Neil's "God Brown" 
To Have Unique Set 

The set is up, the rehearsals are in full swing in preparation for 
the next production at the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse, Eugene 
O'Neil's The Great God Brown. Directed by Mr. Philip Anderson, 
the new speech and drama instructor at Centenary. The Great God 
Brown promises to be a high point in the productions for the "66-'67 
season. Set in present day America. The Great God Brown will be 
played on a single set, designed by Ken Holaman, rather than on 
the series of six sets designated by the script. 

Donald McClintock; Dion Anthony, 
acted by John Goodwin; Lauretta Ma- 
loney in the role of Margaret; and 
Jeannie Smith as Cybel. The "chorus- 
jury" will be played by Paula Stahls, 
Charley Brown, Nild Nichols, Doug 
Frazier, Seve Pearce, Dick Kilboumc, 

Asked to summarize the play, Mr. 
Anderson replied, "Contemporary 
American man stripped off his mask, 
in the presence of his society and 
his Cod, stands trial." The trial theme 
will be suggested by the staging, 
which entails a judge and a "chorus- 
jury," listening to and watching the 
evidence presented by the four main 
characters: Billy Brown, played by 




The annual literary competition, 
sponsored by the Centenary chapter 
of Sigma Tau Delta, and by the Eng-

March first. 

This competition is open to all 
Centenary students, and manuscripts 
may be entered by sending them to 
Box 455, campus mail, or by giving 
them to Paula Stahls. Since this is a 
feeder competition for the Southern 
Literary Festival, we are reqn 
that all manuscripts be prepared ac- 
cording to their regulations. All papers 
should be typed, double-spaced, on 
ide of the paper only. There 
must be three copies of each manu- 
script, titled, but without the author's 
name, which must be included in the 
entry on a separate sheet of paper, 
along with the title and category of 

The three categories for the corn- 
short story, 
and (3) essay (either formal or in- 
formal). The winner in each category 
will receive a ten-dollar prize, and 
the best of the three winners will re- 
5 prize. Th< mm-rs 

will then be entered in the Southern 
Literary Festival. All entries will be 
considered for the Sigma Tau Delta

When the roundballers season began everyone knew what to 
expect — or did we. Students jokingly said if we won ANY it would 
be a miracle. We had a rebuilding team, a young, inexperienced 

Halfway through the season, however, we find ourselves with 
five wins — against such teams as Rice, Arkansas, West Texas State, 
and arch-rivals ETBC and Northwestern.

At the beginning of the season Coach Sigler said "lots of ac-

with a pea shooter, but three of the five wins were by one point — 
how's that for action. 

And the Gents are not without their "stars." Larry Ward, Sopho- 
more, joined the elite "30 or better in one game club" by pumping 
in 33 against West Texas State, bringing his average to 17.6 a game. 
John Blankenship crops second honors averaging 11.8 points a game 
with Bill McBride taking "Most Accurate" and Dellis Germann and 
Andy Fullerton fighting it out for the "Rebounds" honor.

Tonight, the Centenary Gents take on Louisiana Tech at 8:00 
in the Youth Center. The Gents will be fresh from a 84-83 win 
over Northwestern last Tuesday. Tonight's game may offer more 
than just a plain basketball game. The last time that Tech was 
in Shreveport, the two teams intered into a little scrimmage re- 
sulting in a player from each team being removed from the game. 

The game will offer something for the fans. Now only one 
question remains. Will there be any fans at the game to support 
the Gents? If the average attendance is there the Gents can expect 
about a thousand or so indifferent people at the game. 

While on the subject of fans, it does not seem reasonable to 
elect people to lead the students in cheering and Gents and then 
complain when these people, however many may show up at the 
game, begin to do the job that they were elected to do. Perhaps 
instead of complaining about the cheerleaders standing up, why 
not stand up so you can see, then the people behind you will have 
to stand and who knows, you may find yourself involved in the 

Lack of attendance at the games is not completely due to lack 
of interest. It is hard to find a way to get to the fair grounds 
if a person does not have a car. It would be nice if the game could 
be played on campus. This bring up the question: What has hap- 
pened to the once rumored plan for a new gym that could house 
the crowds that are expected to attend the games. 

Realizing that exams are coming up, but why not take time 
out to go to the game? It wil lbe a break from the labors of studying. 
And please forgive us if we have stepped on your toes, why 
don't you move them out of the way. 


With a full semester of intramural 
activities completed, there is still a 
tight race for the men's sweepstakes 
trophy. The most recent point totals 
show Rotary in the lead, followed 
closely by Kappa Alpha and Kappa 

Bowling and volleyball competition 
are the latest of the intramural sports 
which have been finished. Rotary beat 
Kappa Sigma by one point to win the 
bowling title, while the faculty took 
the volleyball championship. Delta Al- 
pha won second in his competition 
while Kappa Sigma defeated KA for 
third place. 

Paddleball is presently in the quar- 
terfinals stage, with eight men still in 
competition. Among those who have 
berths in the paddleball playoffs are 
J. V. Jones, Dean Smith, Ronnie For- 
rest, and Pete Wilcox. 

Five sports remain to be played 
during the second semester, and all 
three top groups are expected to make 
a special effort to win the trophy. 
These remaining sports are basketball, 
softball, badminton, tennis, and hand- 
ball. There are both singles and 
doubles competition in the latter 


Because of rising food costs, we 
are faced with a choice of increas- 
ng board charges or reducing serv- 
ice. Of these two alternatives, 
students seem to prefer the latter 
for second semester. Beginning 
with February 5, 1967, Sunday 
evening meal will not be served 
in the cafeteria.

College-Bound Youths 
Change Reading Habits 

New York, N.Y. (I.P.)— There may have been a dramatic shift in the reading habits of college- 
bound youth during the past several years, according to the results of a study at Columbia College 
recently released. 

The report reveals a trend away 
from the classii s, British writers, and 
those magazines with light content, to 
existentialists like Camus and Dostoev- 
sky, American writers lik. Steinbeck, 
Hemingway, Faulkner ,and Kyn 
and more serious magazines like "The 
\. w li. publii \. ■ ■ ■ ek," "Satur- 
day Review," and "The New Yorker." 

The findings come from a compari- 
son of books, ir and news- 
papers read by entering freshmen in 
the Class of 1962 and the CI 
1970 al Columbia College. All appli- 
cants to the College are requested to 
list the books they have most enjoyed 
and the magazines and 

Shakespeare is the author who has 
di l lined in popularity most conspicu- 
ously. While 25 per cent of tl, 
of 1962 listed at least one of his plays 
ly nine per cent of the 
700-man CI 70 did so. Homer, 

Dickens, C B Shaw, and E M Forst- 
• r were Other important writers who 
have suffered a loss of int. 

On the other hand, several authors 


have risen sharply in popularity. Ca- 
mus, listed as a favorite by only two 
per cent of the Class of 1962, was en- 
joyed by 18 per cent of the Class of 
1970. James Joyce was read by five 
as many members of the Class 
of 1970 as in the earlier group. Kafka, 
Steinbeck, Ayn Rand, Fitzgerald, and 
Faulkner were others whose stock has 

Some authors who were strongly 
liked eight years ago continued to be 
fairly popular: Joseph Conrad, Thomas 
Hardy. Jean-Paul Sartre, Sinclair 
Lewis, Mark Twain, Thomas Wolfe, 
and Hemingw 

Cerain single Ixxiks also continue 

to enjoy the students' favor: Huxley's 

"Brave New World," Joyce's "Portrait 

Vrtist as a Young Man," Saline- 

er's "Catcher in the Rye," Orwell's 
"1948," and "Animal Farm," Fitz- 
gerald's "The Creat Gatsby." 

In magazines, the study reveals a 
movement away from lighter reading 
toward periodicals more concerned 
with weightier matters. "Reader's Di- 
vas read by 29 per cent of the 
Class of 1962, but only six per cent of 
the Class of 1970. Over the eight-year 
span "The New Republic" had the 

t jump in student subscrii 
from two per cent to 15 per cent. 
"Time" is the most widely read maga- 
zine among the Class of 1970, with 49 
per cent, up three per cent from eight

Editorial Policy 

The Centenary Conglomerate is student-written and student- 
edited, and is thus dedicated to student interests and attitudes. 
What are the specifi cpurposes of the newspaper? 

The motivating purpose of any newspaper is simply that of 
reporting the news. And a good paper will report it promptly and 
accurately. Hopefully, though, the spring semester Conglomerate 
will reveal a dual purpose: that of provoking the reader into a 
greater awareness — of current campus issues, of new ideas, and of 
college-correlated national affairs. With these two purposes in mind, 
we will continue to inform, and we will attempt to reflect your 
attitudes and to print facts and opinions to arouse your interest in 
the academic and social climate of Centenary. 

There are some obvious changes in the semester's paper — 
some new columns and features that we hope will find interesting, 
provacative, or entertaining. There are also many hidden changes — 
organizational and technical changes which hopefully will make it 
easier for us to present you with a paper worth reading. 

The editorial page can do much to make these goals a realiza- 
tion. It's purpose is to provide comment on pertinent topics, and 
to allow others the same privilege. Conglomerate editorials may 
represent one opinion; they may represent one thousand. Either 
way, the editorship of a college newspaper carries with it a re- 
sponsibility to the school as a whole. The editorial page is at your 

Do yon like the Conglomerate? 

Do you HI ifeteria food? 

Do you like the college? 

Whether you do or don't - tell us! ! Letters to the editor are 
more than welcome. And they are indicative of a student body that 


Thus the Conglomerate begins a new semester with a new- 
staff and n is. The editor hopes that the published reflection 
of those new ideas will prove informative and provocative to you - 
the students and faculty of Centenary. 

\ el rose Anderson 


Editor of the Conglomerate: 

I would like to announce two con- 
tests. Both have to do with the 
"World's longest two-foot wide closet" 
located in room 07 in the library. 

The first contest seeks to determine 
the possible use for the closet. The 
second is to give it a suitable name. 

The prize for each winner is a 
slightly used wire coat-hanger. 

Entries should be sent to me via 
campus mail.

"The Elder Statesman of the Angry Young Men" 

Colin Wilson created a sensation in the literary world 
when, in his twenties, he published his first book, The Out- 
sider, a shattering criticism of modern civilization that became 
a major critical success. 

Born in England, Wilson quit school at 16 to continue his 
education in classrooms of his own choosing. His early interests 
had been scientific, but after reading the poetry of T. S. Eliot, 
he began to write, supporting himself by a succession of 
menial jobs. After publication of The Outsider in 1956, he 
found himself an international celebrity and a writer to be 
reckoned with in the world of letters. His books include 
Religion and the Rebel, Origins of the Sexual Impulse, and 
many others. 

Often called "The Elder Statesman of the Angry Young 
Men," Wilson will be the Firsl Centenary's spring Forums 
Lecturers when he speaks on \\ o.lnesday, February 15 in the 
auditorium of the Music Building.

Or: Much Ado About Nothing 

Well, it's back to the books after your little holiday. (If you'll 
recall, there was a break between semesters.) Naturally, you all in- 
tend to do much better this semester. Now is the time to make a 
list of second-semester resolutions. Don't misunderstand me; that 
doesn't mean you'll have to keep them. But everyone feels better 
when he has good intentions. Here are a few "good intentions" for 
you to choose from. (Translations are included. After all, who ya 
tryin' to kid anyway?) Don't load yourself down. Even self-improve- 
ment can be overdone. You can always try keeping your bad 
habits a secret. 

1. Absolutely no more last-minute cramming for tests. (From 
now on, when I'm twenty chapters behind in history, I'll 
start reading two nights before the test.) 

2. I'm going to get up and eat a good, nourishing breakfast 
every single morning. (I think ill start keeping fruit and 
candy in my room.) 

3. I'm going to restrain myself this semester — studies before 
fun always. I started the new semester off right by not cut- 
ting all my classes and K"i n .^ to Mardi Cras. (I can't believe 
that creep wouldn't give me a ride to New Orleans.) 

4. I'm never going to cut a class again unless I have a very 
good excuse. (I've got to think up some more convincing 

5. "Early to bed i arly to rise. . ." (Half a resolution is better 
than none. I think I'll get to bed early once in a while.) 

6. I'm going to keep up in every single class — do every as- 
signment read every chapter twice, do outside research . . . 

tin whole works (I think I'd have done a whole lot better 
last semester if I had had a textbook.) 

7. I'm going to discipline myself to stav wide awake and com- 
plete!) alert whenever I go to a 7:50 class. (Well, I did 
'whenever I go" .... If I'm not completely alert. 1 just 
won't go.) 

8. My room is going to look neat at all times if it kills me. 
(Okay, it'll look neat. I'm not malting any promises about 
under the bed i lo! i ts, drawers 

9. This semester. I'm really gome, to stiek to that diet (I'll make 
myselJ skip breakfast ever) Saturday and Sunday mornine |

"God Brown" Next 
On MLP Agenda 

The Marjorie Lyons Playhouse will be the scene of the Jongleurs' next dramatic presentation: 
Eugene O'Neill's tragedy concerning American man, stripped of his mask, THE GREAT GOD 

(Photo by Atwood) 



Aristide Maillol (1861-1944) was a French sculptor who devoted 
his creative talent almost exclusively to studies of the female nude. 
Like the Archaic and early-Classical Greek sculptor, the basic aim 
nt Maillol was to stress the static, monumental qualities of the 
human form. Rather than attempt to convey emotion or realism, 
Maillol, like the artist of 5th-Century B.C. Greece, sought to capture 
in his work the ideal human form of solid, clearly defined volume. 
(Simplified strength prevails in the work of Maillol.) 
Maillol was trained under the being that is detached from the stress 

dominant influence of Rodin, an artist 
of superior ability. Restless, thrusting 
energy is typical of Rodin and Rodin 
often achieved very dramatic effects 
by only partly finishing many of his 
pieces of sculpture. (An excellent ex- 
ample of this style is on exhibit at 
\orton Gallery in Shreveport.) 
Maillot's return to the ideals of the 
Archaic and Severe styles of Greece 
in part, a reaction against the 
kind of work produced by Rodin. 

Maillol believed that a piece of 
sculpture should represent a state of 

of circumstance. 

Dr. David Kimball presented the 
lithograph, "Nude," to the library in 
1962. The simplified strength in Mail- 
lot's execution of this "well-rounded" 
young woman is typical of Maillol's 
scultping. This particular lithograph 
was done exclusively in sanquine 
tones. If one has never had the op- 
portunity to visit museums which 
house the works of Maillol one need 
only to imagine this nude on a scale 
of approximately eight or ten feet to 
visualize this sculptor's work. 

When the lights dim on the audi- 
ence of first nighters and the stage 
comes alive with the poetic words of 
America's foresmost playwright, only a 
small portion of the real activity in- 
volved in the production will be 
seen. Only the actors and actresses 
who act the parts in the play will be 
seen, but twice as many individuals 
are responsible for the production. . . 
they are the various technical crews 
and decision makers. 

BROWN began last spring when the 
play was chosen by Phillip D. Ander- 
son, playhouse technical director. 
Deep analysis of the text followed. 
Anderson had to decide what his pro- 
duction would stress, what he wanted 
to say to the audience via O'Neill's 

During the summer, director An- 
derson met with scenery designer 
Ken Holamon and a general approach 
was selected which would further 
stress the subtile meaning of O'Neill's 
dialogue. After a month of daily 
consultation, Anderson decided to ap- 
proach the play as a trial. . .an ap- 
proach suggested in one of O'Neill's 
stage directions. From this point, work 
on the production moved quickly. 

The set was designed and revisions 
were made by Holamon. Mrs. O. R. 
Corey who designed the masks for 
the production began work on deep 
character analysis and research for the 

two dozen masks which will be worn 
in the show. 

From mid-September until Decem- 
ber analysis of stage action was done 
by Mr. Anderson. The play was cast 
during the first week in December 
and from that time until now, some 
40 people have been involved in the 

The cast is lead by John Goodwin 
as Dion Anthony, Jeannie Smith as 
Cybel, Lauretta Moloney as Margaret 
and Don McClintoct as Billy Brown. 

Others in the cast are Paula Stahls, 
Charlie Brown, Niki Nichols, Doug 
Frazier, Steve Pearce, Richard Kil- 
bourne, Becky Hollis, Margaret Har- 
baugh, Macky Fahey, David Adams, 
Vestria Raspbery, Cathy Larmoyeux, 
Jerry Kilpatrick, Judy Rathut and 
Marsha Harper. 

The technical crew for THE 
GREAT GOD BROWN headed by- 
Phil Anderson, Cathy Anderson, co- 
director and choreographer, Mrs. O. 
R. Corey, mask designer and Ken 
Holamon, set designer include Van 
Walker, Gen Hay and Nita Fran

is in charge of sound. Stephen Mum 
has composed special music for the 
production. Set construction is in the 
hands of Gary Corn, Rick Walton and 
Mrs. Earline Brown. Dorothy Kohout 
is in charge of set painting and is 
aided by Cathy Lamoyeux and Mar- 
garet Harbaugh. Properties are by 

Marsha Harper. Jimmy Journey is in 
charge of make-up.

In Recital 

Jimmy Herrin, graduating organ 
major and pupil of William C. Teague, 
presented his senior recital in Brown 
Memorial Chapel Friday, January 
13th. The program opened with the 
Trumpet Voluntary in D Major by 
William Boyce, moved through a Bach 
Pracludium et Fuga and the first 
Franck Chorale, and ended with the 
fast-moving and explosive Variations 
Sur un Noel by Marcel Dupre. 

This recital completes the require- 
ments for the Bachelor of Music De- 
gree, and following graduation at the 
end of this semester, Mr. Herrin plans 
to attend Oklahoma University as an 
organ student of Mildred Andrews. 

So you'll get to be President of U.S. Copper two years later 

What's your hurry? You've got a whole 
lifetime ahead of you. 

Plenty of time to work and make 
money and own a house and belong to 
a club and buy insurance and be a big 
success or a small success or not and 
have a cardiogram once a year and cut 
out polyunsaturated fats* while you're 
trying to nurse an ulcer and watch your 
chest sink slowly into your belly and do 
the rest of the kind of things that most 
people end up doing even if they don't 
plan on it. 

What's your hurry? You're only 

young once. And that once is now. And 
now is the time , probably the only time 
you'll have a chance to do something 
you don't have to do. Something out of 
the pattern. 

Something far and on your own and 
away from the person you are and the 
life you've lived. Something full of do- 
ing things maybe you never would have 
or could have done unless you had to. 
Something full of seeing things you 
vould have seen unless you 
stood there. Something like joining the 
Peace Corps. 

What's your hurry? You know every- 
thing you want to do will still be here 
to do in a couple of years. The only 
thing you don't know is what a cou- 
ple of years in the Peace Corps will do 
for you. 

Maybe it'll help you get to be 
President of U.S. Copper faster. 
Maybe when you get there it'll help 
you be better. Or maybe it'll help you 
find out you don't want to be President 
of U.S. Copper at all. — .

Hey You! 

Whether you are just through wearing your Beanie, 
or even if you're getting ready for a cap and gown, you 
don't know all about everything. 

Being the "wise students" that you are, you 
ask your friends about teachers and courses before 
registering for them. 

Greek or non-Greek, you listen to all the sides 
of going Greek or independent. If you go Greek then 
you have three or four different groups to choose 
from by their rush tactics. 

Graduating students listen to the advance and 

proposals made both by graduate schools and the 

business world. Even the Mrs. degree candidates like 
to view the field of prospective proposals. 

Beginning to get the idea? The wise person 
doesn't always select the first offer, or invest in some- 
thing about which he knows nothing. 


The advertisers in this paper are not paying money 
just so you can have a Conglomerate every Friday to 
read during class, keep baby kittens from ruining floors, 
or wrap fish in 

Conglomerate advertisers are interested in showing 
and selling their products or services to you. They 
believe they have the best products to offer you at 
the best prices (and they know how small college 
budgets are). 

Read the advertisements and be informed, 
advertisers believe you'll profit by doing so. 

And you know, they're right.

( 502M 4ILO AIIEHR ATTE 0r: Much Mo About Nothing 



For Everyone: 


Homecoming. To Centenarians what does the word imply? ? 
Stuffing crepe paper into a display, renewing acquaintances, watch- 
ing the Gents attempt a victory, chuckling at the old-timers' game, 
enjoying an all-campus dance. These actions and more compose a 
student homecoming — and motivate alumni recollections of 

Homecoming is definitely a time of activity. But isn't it also 
a time to reveal pride? ? And spirit? ? 

Homecoming has gradually grown in significance in recent 
years. And this year - Homecoming 1967 — can easily be one of 
the best ones ever. The homecoming committee has done an excel- 
lent job of organizing, planning and publicizing. And they have 
emphasized the fact that homecoming is just as much for the 
students as it is for alums. The rest is up to us. 

All we have to do is participate. 

In a sense, we have a responsibility to the alums. Many of us 
have enjoyed visiting our high school alma maters and seeing 
changes, improvements — and friendliness - and enthusiasm. 

A totally successful homecoming will depend on student par- 
ticipation - because homecoming is for everyone: students. . . 
faculty. . . alums.

Did you ever stop to think about what you really learn in 
college? Not just dull, ordinary things like embryology, plant tax- 
onomy, kinesiology, and vector analysis — but things that will be 
of real value in later life. Many people (often parents) seem to have 
many distorted ideas about college. Read this, and see if you can't 
set them straight. 

For instance, how many times has someone told you that the 
only tiling that you really learn in college is how to play a decent 
game of bridge? The next time that you hear this grossly unfair 
statement, just whip out a Finite book and show the unbeliever 
that equal emphasis is placed on dice games and poker. 

College is also a big help in improving your reading habits. 
Just ask anyone who has ever had Kiddie Lit. 

One of the biggest attributes to be gained from college life is 
self-control. Where else would you learn to complain that a meal 
is the worst you've ever eaten, and yet still sit and eat it for two 
hours! Speaking of the cafeteria, another lesson to be learned there 
is etiquette. This will really show up in later life. Wait until you sit 
down in a fancy cafeteria somewhere and start eating off your tray. 
Or better yet, if someone drops their tray, you start clapping and 
let loose with a good old Centenary cheer. 

One thing that must be learned by all Centenary students is 
grace. We owe this acquired grace to the brilliant engineers who 
planned the spacing of the little steps all over the campus. Ry 
necessity, everyone must learn to take either two "graceful" baby 
steps per step, or one "graceful" giant step per step. Of course, there 
is always that dissenting element who refuse to leam. They just 
say to heck with it and tramp through the mud. 

Grace, etiquette, self-control, poker — these are but a few of 
the most important things you can learn at college if you really 
apply yourself. There are, however, many little bits of useful 
knowledge that you can pick up here and there. Some of the most 
helpful are (1) thrift, or how to sell a $7.50 book to a freshman for 
$8.50 and make him think he's getting a bargain, (2) wise use of 
time, or how to convince yourself that five hours of sleep per night 
is enough for anybody, and (3) ingenuity, or menu revision, or how 
to change rice and baked apples into mice head pie and naked 

Now see how worthwhile college is? I ! ? 

suggest that he (1) fill his closet with the following items: a 
beanie, a chapel card, a Conglomerate, a Yoncopin, a Dionne 
Warwick album, a cafeteria menu, and a picture of East Colon- 
ial Hall, (2) seal the closet up, and (3) put a plaque on the door 
saying that the seal is not to be broken until the year 2967. 
(In 1000 years, Centenary students will want to know what life 
was like way back when.) 

MENT: This week's award undoubtedly goes to the pair of

of friends.

Rainey And Group Visit - Tother Sjde . 
Neighbors to the South F rom This side 


The pyramids of Teotihuacan and the Xochimilco Gardens were just a few of the wonders of 
old Mexico visited by a group of Centenary students during the recent mid-semester break. 
Dr. Viva L. Rainey, Assistant Pro- ling. At Senor Orasco's home they met 

his wife, who is an opera singer, and 
his daughter, who is a well-known 
painter in Mexico. In the Garcia home 
the group visited with his rather large 
family of seven children, and Senor 
Oetling served as their guide on the 
tour of the pyramids. 

fessor of History and Government, 
chaperoned the 10 students on their 
tour of Mexico City. 

The group left from Marshal], Texas 
by train. Two days, two nights, 
and 1500 miles later, they arrived in 
Mexico City. They were held up for 
a short time at the border at Loredo 
because of a mix-up on one of the stu- 
dent's birth certificates, but the prob- 
lem was solved and the tour con- 

On their first day, the group visited 
the National University (40,000 stu- 
dents) and the Xochimilco Gardens, 
and saw the famous mummies at the

San Angel Mission. The second day 
they toured the Basilica of Guadalupe 
and the Castle of Chapuletepec. The 
next day they spent at the famous 
Pyramids of Teotihuacan. 

Other sight-seeing trips included a 
tour of the Museum of Anthropology 
and the old Cortez Cathedral, plus 
numerous shopping trips around 
Mexico City. 

But perhaps most interesting of all 
were the visits to private homes. Dr. 
Rainey, who lived in Mexico from 
1953 to 1960, still maintains contact 
with many of her old friends there. 
She and her students were invited to 
the homes of Fernando Orasco, Dr. 
Francisco Garcia, and Fredrich Oet- 

Those Centenary students making 
the trip were Marty Allain, Gene 
Lyles, Mark Prezioni, Ann Marie 
Holmes, Gordon Hamilton, Pat Hen- 
nessey, Terry Ware, Jane Savage, 
John Agers, and Trudy Schonefelder, 
a German exchange student. 

Joining the group in Mexico City 
was a former Centenary student, Ernie 
Arnold, who is now serving in the 
armed forces in Denver, Colorado. 


Sweden is a paradox. Most Ameri- 
cans picture it as a climatically cold 
country, with fair-haired people and 
rugged, desolate, wind-swept terrain 
where promiscuity reigns king. Not 
true! Granted, in the winter the winds 
do blow cold, but summer. . . .open- 
air swimming pools, bikinis, and fields 
of red roses. Fair-haired people. . . . 
there are as many brunettes as blonds 
in Sweden. This stems primarily from 
the unusually high number of in- 
teracial marriages there. The ter- 
rain. . . .generally as flat as Ohio, 
except in the North, and interlaced 
with thousands of lakes and streams, 
not fjords— that's Norway. 

Now let me clarify the last thing. . . 
something about promiscuity. (I must 
remember its connotation for you and 
for me are two different tilings.) In 
Sweden — for that matter, ALL of 
Europe — promiscuous is an unknown 
word. Discretion is not. Europeans, in 
general, consider the idea, behind 
something and how it will be carried 
out — not the act itself. In our pseudo- 
puritanical way of thinking, this isn't 
correct. We must act like Southern 
"ladies" and "gentlemen" — and the 
Europeans wonder why our divorce 
rate is so high and why our women 
control the men. 

The Swedes, in general, are honest, 
immaculate, ambitious, reliable, hand- 
some people — yet they are outward- 
ly cold, hard-to-get-to-know social 
climbers who ape American customs 
and styles. In some ways they're more 
American than we are. And individ- 
ualists! No other nationality in all of 
Europe is as individualistic in dress, 
manner, and personality as are the 
Swedes. The girls. . . .tall, beautiful, 
awe-inspiring, intelligent, cold, yet 
warm. The language. . . .impossible. 
It is said that the only way to learn it 
is strictly by living and speaking it in 
the country itself. 

Hey! What's happening! The truck 
we caught a ride in to Sweden is stop- 
ping! The couple of Swedish students 
who are with our group from the 
Youth Hostel are talking to the driv- 
er. . . .he's making wild gestures. . . . 
(typical Luxembourg imbecile— claims 
he misunderstood where we were go- 
ing). According to one of the Swedes, 
in the course of our conversation on 
Sweden in the back of his truck, we 
failed to watch the road signs. This 
man is heading across the southern tip 
of Belgium, to Ostende. Well— another 
"Happening" - the method never 
fails. So. . .why not Ostende to Lon- 
don via ferry? Something different— 
and the writing next week might be 
a bit more kosher.

MLP Opens 
"God Brown" 

"It looks like a courtroom, and it is a courtroom, but not a real 
one. It is more of a courtroom of the mind — timeless, and without 
particular location. It is a place where both sides of the personali- 
ties of the characters can be clearly seen. It is not primarily 
symbolic, but it does create the peculiar mood necessary for this 
play." These words were the ones used by Ken Holamon. a sopho- 
more from Forest City, Arkansas, to describe the setting for Eugene 
O'Neill's The Great God Brown, which opened last night at the 
Marjorie Lyons Playhouse. 

Holamon, who designed the set 
for this production, was quick to point 
out that even though the design is 
easily recognizable as a courtroom, it 
looks like no other court room anyone 
has ever seen. The stage, painted in 
the dark browns of the earth below, 
• red by a jagged mass of gray 
platforms. On stage right of

scrim panels complete the courtroom

.1 tie play. Rather than continuing to 
any particular point, they sirnpb I nd 
iving the impression that 
they must never hai I — or 
that they ma) continue into infinity 

In talking of the planning for the 

stage of God Brown, Holamon pointed 
out that the original production was 
done realistically, but that the play- 
wright, O'Neill, had been displeased 
with it. Holamon said that the settine 
standing on the playhouse stage is 
actually the fifth design that hi 
<lm ctor Phil Anderson, and playhouse 
. r-in-residence, Irene Corey, 
had di ! ir God 

Brown. The m.un reason for choosing 
the present setting was that it was 
not imposed upon the play, but that 
from within the play.

H.SXL Takes Gents 

Last Saturday afternoon the Gents almost won their 7th game 
of the season. It was a heart breaker for the team which lost 99-97 
in overtime to Hardin-Simmons University. The Gents were not 
suppose to be any competition for the Cowboys, who a few nights 
earlier had lost to Houston by just 7. 

Paul Lambert, the H.S.U. coach, Tonight the Gents play Southern 

opened the game with a full-court Mississippi at the Hirsch Youth Cent- 

press, which the Gents managed to 
run through as if it were not there. 
Centenary rushed off to a 9-3 lead 
before H.S.U. knew what had hit 
them. Then Sylvester Neal, a Louisi- 
iana boy who bagged 30 points, be- 
gan to use his height and strength to 
shove the Gents away from the basket. 
A few of his baskets might have been 
questionable— questionable that is to 
everyone but the officials, who called 
foul after foul on the Cents. Despite 
the argument, the score at intermission 
read 44-43 in favor of the visitors. 

Midway through the 2nd half the 
held a comfortable lead 69-60, 
only to see it eaten away as time 
ticked on. With a minute to go tin- 
Cents were behind 89-86, but two 
quick shots by Ward put the Gents 
ahead 90-89. With 10 seconds re- 
maining, Watson of H.S.U. was fouled 
and made the 1st of a 1 and 1 free 
throw. This knotted the score at 90 
all and sent the game into an i rtra 
5 minutes. The Cowboys went on to 
score 9 points in the overtime, while 
Centenary could m 7. 

ll u.is .i good effort for the Ci ints, 
.is thi 1 to -.how signs of 

idling feir the first time thi^ season. 

Ward and Blankenship had 21 points 
while Andy Fullerton and 

Gale added 20 and 15. Chalk up loss 
■ of the season, but add an 

improvemenl step with each game. 

er. Although the Mississippians have 
beat the Gents once this year, the 
varsity feels that it can make a better 
showing than the last encounter. 
After the homecoming tilt the Gents 
will travel to Canyon, Texas, to play 
West Texas, and then return the 23rd 
of February for its last home game 
against Northwestern. 

S.LU. Wins 
Hard Tussle 
With Gents 

A crowd of 2,131 customers watch- 
ed the Centenary Gents tussle with 
Southern Illinois University, the No. 1 
small college team in the nation. Most 
people thought the scrappy Gents 
would get massacred, but this did 
not seem to hold true. Although 
79-63 does not indicate a very 
close score, the Gents managed to 
stay within close range most of the 
With 4 minutes remaining in 
the 1st half. Ward and Blankenship 
got hot and pulled the "midgets" to 
within 7 points of the visitors. This 
proved to be the closest the Gents got 
to the Salukins the entire night. 

Midway through the 2nd half, the 
Gents put on a charge and pulled to 
within 10, 57-47. Then the Salukins 
settled down and took only the good 
percentage shoots. (The Gents shot 
I ■ impan 1 to 18 for S.I.U.) 
S.I.U. controlled the tempo of the 
game with its' fine defensive play and

very deliberate offense. Although 
S.I.U. did not have any great scoring 
leaders, the team was a well balanced 
club that played together well. Al- 
though the Gents did manage to break 
60, a feat that few teams have done 
this year, it was not enough to over- 
come the No. 1 team. 

Game scoring honors went to Larry 
Ward, who netted 22, followed by 
Scally and Blankenship. with 15 and 
13 points. Hartman, the S.I.U. coach, 
praised the Gents' effort: "They never 
gave up," he said. "They kept coming 
at us." 


Men's Intramurals 

Intramural basketball started this 
week, and there were some very un- 
usual scores. Kappa Sigma barely got 
by the Rinky-Dinks from Cline 86-15. 
It was close about the first 30 sec- 
onds, but then the Dinks died out. 
In another close game, Loren Wal- 
lace's team outlasted the Go-rillas 
84-20. The Blackhawks didn't have 
much trouble in their win— the In- 
eligibles forfeited to them. The TKE's 
looked good in their win over the 
Grey Ghosts and Rotary beat the KA's 
44-32. In a low scoring game, Cossa's 
Robbers beat the Rotary Zoo 36-34. 
Probably the worst and most colorful 
team in intramurals are the Do-Its. 
After the DA's had stopped laughing 
at the Its, they won 34-23. A schedule 
of next weeks' games is posted in the

A Letter Home 

Or: "Guess What, Dad..." 

(Editor's note: The following article was copied from The Louisiana 
Tech Orientation Manual.) 

Dear Dad, 

Thanks for the money to begin the second semester with. 
The only trouble, is I graduated yesterday, I know it's sort of a 
surprise, with me being an entering freshman several months ago. 
It was sort of a surprise to me too. 

I went to register yesterday and when they gave me my IBM 
cards they said I had enough credit hours to graduate and sent 
me to the Dean to get my diploma. The only thing I can think of 
is that when I stepped on my cards with my golf shoes last fall 
they got messed up. Anyway, I was given a 8-553-22 today, a 
diploma. I went to see the Dean and he said not to tell him his 
machines were wrong, with 56,000 students in them. 

Anyway, I got a B.A. in philosophy. I don't know if I should 
stay in chemistry now or not. What do you think? I know you were 
quite interested in me working in the drug store, but I don't 
know what to do. I tried to re-enter as a second quarter freshman 
but they said they wouldn't take graduates. I tried to get into grad 
school but they needed references from five teachers in under- 
graduate schol and I only had three. 

Last night I started to call, but I didn't want to worry you 
about it, since I'm a graduate now and should be able to take care 
of myself. So today I want down to the Army place. They're 
looking for college graduates to be officers. I did OK on the 
tests, so I guess I'll go in there a while. I seem to fit in pretty well. 

Besides, next year I'd be eligible for the draft anyway, 
and businesses don't like to hire graduates who haven't been in 
the service yet. They said they'd teach me some philosophy. I 
brought a book with me. 

I hope everythings' fine at the drug store. 


P. S. Tell mom not to send those cookies. Tell her that her child 
is "watching over the country."

Dear Dr. Vogel: 

In response to your twin contests 
announced in the Conglomerate of

pose that the two-foot closet be

Dear Sir, 

Please consider this (board and all) 
an entry in your contest to put the 
"World's longest two-foot wide clos- 
et" to a good use. I can testify from 
practical experience that the closet 
works quite well for storing 16-foot 
long boards. 

P.S. The long tide in your letter 
to the editor of the Conglomerate is 
very appropriate, so why don't you 
call this remarkable little loom the 
"World's longest two-foot wide 


Dr. Vogel: 

In reference to the "World's long- 
est two-foot wide closet" Contest: 

My suggestion is that the closet be 
used for skeletons either from the 
History Department or if there is 
room left, the Biology Department. 

Each closet should be appropriately 
labelled H.D.S.C. (B.D.S.C). 

If I should win; I would like to 
donate the slightly used wire coat- 
hanger to the cafeteria staff. I am 
sure they wil find a use for it.

To the editor, 

The other view of this view 

Transylvania is a paradox. Most 
foreigners picture it as a cold, dreary 
country, full of ruined castles, open 
graves, wind-swept cedar trees, and 
bat-filled belfries. Not so! Granted, 
when the film producers are there, 
they pick out the dreariest of locations 
for their histories, but in the less 
populated areas. . . .warm casdes, 
nice clean moats, well-kept crypts, and 
plasma banks for the control of vam- 
pires. Vampires. . . .there are as many, 
if not more, garlic necklaces as vam- 
pires in Transylvania, due to the un- 
usually high number of garlic farms 
in the country. The open graves. . . . 
due to the great number of medical 
students in the country, and no bel- 
fries—that's England. 

Now let me clarify the last thing, 
something about Not True. (I must 
remember that connotation for you 
and for me are two different things). 
In Transylvania— for that matter, all 
of the Balkan states, True is an un- 
known word. Not is not. Balkans, in 
general, consider how they can get 
away with something, not the thing 
itself. In our pseudo-puritanical way 
of doing things, this isn't correct. We 
must act like true (sorry for the use of 
that word) "sports", and they wonder 
why our mental institutions are so 
filled, and why morticians' fees are so 

The Transylvanians, in general, are 
conniving, sneaky, grave-digging, gar- 
lic-smelling, mistrusting people — yet 
they are outwardly full-blooded, easy 
to know, garlic farmers who get their 
digs at all of our silly custom; in 
some ways they're more customary 
than we are. And individualists! No 
other country in Europe is as individ- 
ualistic in farming, building, or exca- 
vation as are the Transylvanians. . . . 
The vampires. . .Tall, graceful, awe- 
inspiring, flighty, clever, cold-blooded, 
yet warmly friendly. The garlic necks 
.... impossible. It is said that the 
only way to understand them is strict- 
ly by living with a wreath of garlic 
about your neck for all your life. 

Hey, what's happening! My copy of 
National Geographic is burning up. 
The fire department is rushing to save 
the magazine. They're making wild 
gestures. . . .(Typical bureaucratic 
imbeciles - they've extinguished my 
pipe and mined my armchair). Ah 
well, perhaps next month I'll visit 

The locust eating herdsmen of Outer 
Mongolia, or a Buddhist snake temple. 
Something different, and the writing 
next time might be a little more

Editor, The Conglomerate 

On behalf of all the various Home- 
coming committees, I want to thank 
the students who gave so generously 
of their time and energy to make our 
three day celebration such a success. 
It was most gratifying to meet with 
such whole-hearted cooperation, and 
student participation was a big factor 
in every single event. 

Some of this participation was self- 
evident, as in the truly spectacular 
lawn displays, the signs and posters, 
and the most informative exhibits put 
up by campus organizations at the 
Sub. We also appreciated thost who 
contributed their talent to the festivi- 
ties — the band, the choir, the Play- 
house performers, the student enter- 
tainers and their directors. The high 
caliber of their performances made 
us truly proud to be associated with 
such outstanding young people. 

Suda Adams and her able assistants 
Fran and Ellen Victory, Suzette De- 
Weese, Pat Frantz had a great deal 
to do with every aspect of Home- 
coming. I want again to convey our 
thanks to Suda and to all of you who 
took time from your busy schedules 
to make all our alumni feel truly 
welcome and to make Homecoming 
'67 such a happy and memorable 

Grace J. Norton 
Alumni Chairman, 
1967 Homecoming 

Editor, The Conglomerate, 

This letter is addressed to all those 
Centenary students who worked on 
or participated in 1967 Homecoming 
in any way. 

Congratulations! If nothing else was 
accomplished by this year's Home- 
coming, our alumni were greatly im- 
pressed by the students and the 
efforts which they put forth before 
and during the weekend. 

Centenary has an excellent reputa- 
tion, and it's important that all of 
us strive to uphold it. But if the 
student support of the Homecoming 
weekend is any indication, we should 
not only live up to that reputation, 
but surpass it. 

My sincere thanks to all of you.

Gents Lose Game 
In Last Minutes 

If you could erase the last few minutes of a ball game, the 
Gents would have a better record and people would not be standing 
on their heads. In the last three home games the game has been 
won in the last minute or so. The Gents homecoming tilt with 
Southern Mississippi was no different. Southern took a 101-97 de- 
cision over the Gents that played before 2345 students and alumni. 
For really the first time this season John Blankenship and Larry 
Ward were both hot at the same time. People that watched the 
freshmen team play last year will remember that this feat happened 
many times. 

The game was mostly a game of 
strict offense with both teams doing 
very little to curtail the opposing 
team's shots. By intermission both 
teams had reached the half-century 
mark and tilings did not appear to be 
slowing down. 

With 15 minutes remaining on the 
clock in the second half, the Gents 
held a 63-55 advantage. With ten 
minutes remaining the Gents had even 
a bigger lead 73-64, but to puit it 
bluntly— they blew it. 

Centenary fired a .463% from the 
field while Southern was hitting at 
the .380%. Leading the way for the 
Gents was Ward with 28 fololwed by 
Blankenship with 25 and Dave Gale 
with 18. This puts the Gents at 7 wins 
and 14 losses with five games re-

Southern Illinois University de- 
feated Centenary gymnastic team 
141.462-139.895 in a dual meet in 
Carbondale, Illinois last Friday night. 
It was a great effort for the girls as 
they took second through fifth places 
in the over-all competition. Southern 
Illinois ace Donna Schaenzar took 
first followed by Janie Speaks, Susan 
McDonnell, Marianne Woolner, and 
Karen Lively. Janie Speaks won the 
only first place event for Centenary, 
that being in the floor exercise. Janie, 
Susan, Marianne, and Mardie Banks- 
ton all finished high in the balance. 
Susan and Janie tied for second in the 
uneven bars with Diane Masse and 
Marianne turning in good perform- 
ances. Southern Illinois is not only the 
number one small college basketball 
team, but they are number one in 
gymnastics and the defending AAU 
women's gymnastics champion. 

The girls returned home Saturday 
and began to prepare for the clinic

March 1. The coach of the Czecho-

through with a 83-14 win over the 
Blackhawks. The Binky Dinks beat 
the Grey Ghosts 19-8, while the Go- 
rillas outlasted the Ineligibles in a 
superbly executed game 21-15. Lur- 
leen Wallace's team recorded it's sec- 
ond victory in a row, with a 84-36 
decision over TKE II. In the last game 
of the week, Cossa's Robbers beat the

CC "Midgets" Win 
Final Home Game 

Well, the Centenary Gents finally did it — they won two games 
in a row. After beating West Texas State, the Gents returned home 
to play their last home game of the season. It was a fine example 
of the Gents' progress throughout the season, as Sigler's "midgets" 
took an 83-75 decision over Northwestern. This was the second 
time the Gents had beaten the Demons, but if you will remember, 
the first game was a wee bit closer. (The Gents won 84-83 on a 
freak 4 point play by Bill McBride at the buzzer.) 

The Gents used long outside bombs attempts from the field. John Blanken- 

to take a 39-34 halftone lead that they 
never relinquished. Northwestern 
played a zone defense the entire 
game, but the Gents were successful 
in feeding the ball to Dave Gale and 
Andy Fullerton under the basket. 
When the Demons adjusted to cover 
the inside men, the guards picked 
up the slack and hit consistently from 
the outside. The Gents hit a cool .485 
percentage, while hitting 33 of 68 

ship and Larry Ward lead the way, 
scoring 23 and 27 points respectively. 
Coach Hildebrand of Northwestern 
praised the Gents for their outside 
shooting, and also commended Cent- 
enary for the progress they had made 
through the season. Coach Sigler was 
a happy man after the game, and 
praised the Gents for a fine team

Men's Intramural 

In intramural action last week, the 
TKE second team took a close de- 
cision from the Do-Its 24-23. The 
fatuity, playing with just five men, 
were beaten by the Rotary I. The 
Go-Grillas had to battle down to the 
wire with the Blackhawks, but finally 
pulled the decision out 38-27. In a 
very close game the KA's used two 
free throws to beat the Zoo by the 
score of 00-00. Two teams managed 
to score more than 100 points, while 
holding their opponents to under 15. 
Melvin Bosler scored the 100th point 
for Loren Wallace's team, and they 
went on to win 104-12. The Kappa 
Sigma first team also reached the 

century mark, with Lane Dreyer scor- 
ing No. 100 on a lay-up. The final 
score was 102-13. The battle seems 
to be boiling down to the KE-Wallace 
game, which will be played on March 


In the last WRA meeting, the fol- 
lowing girls were selected to play in 
the Ail-Star basketball game to be 
held on March 7: Marilyn Padgett, 
Lelia Vaughan, Jeanie Butler, Janet

Our Responsibility 

(Editor's note: It is the Conglomerate's opinion that a college 
newspaper should offer comment on pertinent national and inter- 
national affairs. A topic of utmost importance and urgency is that 
of the war in Viet Nam. The editor feels that this editorial topic is 
an especially appropriate one for a responsible college community.) 

This week finds a force of 340,000 men fighting the war in Viet 
Nam — our brothers, sons, fathers, cousins, friends. Time magazine 
reports this week that 26,000 Americans have volunteered in the 
past year to join an expanding U.S. team of civilians in South Viet 
Nam to "push forward a peaceful social revolution amid the ravage 
of war." Their readiness to try is striking. Perhaps we should stop 
for a moment and think. 

We are rich. In material things, America is still the richest 
land on earth. And we are ahead in technological development and 
scientific research. But the United States is an underdeveloped 
area when it comes to national understanding. It doesn't matter if 
we don't know all the military facts about Viet Nam. But it makes 
all the difference in the world if we understand the motivation of 
the Viet Namese. And if we are sympathetic with die crowded mil- 
lions who inhabit Asia, and if we think of the Russians as humans, 
as we are, and if we're sympathetic with the poverty-stricken thous- 
ands in India. 

America's destiny, indeed, the world's very survival, may de- 
pend on such an understanding on our part. It is the simple things- 
food, health, shelter, education— that the world's people most need- 
all providing a measure of security and a hope for peace. Here is 
where America can and should lead the way. 

Dag Hammarskjold stated, "The path to peace lies away from 
the tangled forests of militarism and national self-sufficiency and 
pride. It loads out toward the bright open highlands of internatiional 
co-operation and international accomplishment." 

Peace is a collective wish, a basic desire, and most of all, an 
inspiring human ideal. A newspaper editor can say— Be proud of 
Vmerii a Support the boys in \ iel Nam. . . But no matter how loud 
and huw often people shout about peace - it won't come auto- 
tnaticallj The ideal "I peace includes various acts, ideas, and 
standards "I perfection that are decided over a long period of time 
by individuals oi a nation — US. 

\imI it is time for us to think. 

Exact!) what do we have in mind when we think and talk 
about Do we realize the aims and ideals of peace, on one 

hand - and on thi do we think aboul achieving these aims 

• i". I approa< hing the idi as?? tn all the world, there has seldom 1 
a more important qu< rucial time. The answer is 

ch ol us as Vmerii an citizens, to think about and choose for 

\ wonderfully amusing, but nevertheless thought-provoking, 
concept ol peace is revealed bj a little ml in a Sandburg p 
when she says "Somedaj they'll hold .. war. and nobodyll come." 

Let us start thinking a little more - caring a little more - and 
ig .i little m. ire concerned today, March 10, 1967. 

Nelrose Anderson 


To the Editor: 

I want to express to you my appre- 
ciation for the vastly improved "Con- 
glomerate". It is a pleasure to read 
college news, rather than advertise- 
ment! I do hope you can broaden 
the editorial policy to the point that 
any competing news sheet will be 
unnecessary. You and your staff are 
off to a good start; please continue. 

With every good wish, I am 

Sincerely yours, 

The Rev. Fr. Kenneth W. Paul

For centuries, artists have fallen under the spell of the sea. 
Othon Friesz is no exception. Born in 1879 in the salt-air city, Le 
Havre, France, Friesz fell in love with the sparkle of water and the 
colorful sails of boats. He sought to express this love through art. 
After studying in Le Havre, he went to Paris and studied with 

For awhile, Friesz was intrigued by the Impressionists. How- 
ever, he was dissatisfied with working in their stye and, in 1904, he 
was invited to exhibit with the trio Matisse, Derain, and Vlamnick, 
who painted in ". . . savage splashes of pure pigment. . ." in reaction 
against ". . . anything that resembled a photographic plate taken 
from life." The critics were furious, accusing Friesz and his comrades 
of "color madness", and labeling them the Fauves (wild beasts). 
Friesz was the good friend of George Braque and Raoul Dufy and 
brought them into the Fauves. 

However, Friesz began to tire of this obsession with wild color. 
When Cezanne emerged from obscurity, almost all the Fauves 
went over to him, including Friesz, in 1908. Cezanne's concern 
for volume and shape appealed to Friesz, who felt that "colour was 
no longer the master of the canvas." 

Unfortunately for Friesz, he slipped into submission to the real 
genius of Cezanne and ". . . subsided into run-of-the-mill Cezan- 

"Les Jetees, Le Havre" pictures a quaint scene from Friesz's 
hometown. It is not rendered in the severe colors which are typical 
of the Fauves; however, if one carefully compares this painting to a 
work of one of the Fauves of a later period, one can see the 
similarity to, and hint of, the style to come. 

Dr. David Kimball gave this painting to the library in June, 
1965. The painting will be on special display througl t the week.

(A Chronicle Features Release 

Formation of The Fair Play for North Vietnam Committee has 
been announced by The Reverend Homer T. Pettibone, D.D.S. 

"As evidence mounts that our planes, accidentally or not, have 
been bombing civilians in Hanoi, Dr. Pettibone gravely told a 
televised press conference, "our Committee demands that the U.S. 
Government yield to the dictates of fair play." 

"We assume, Doctor," said a reporter with a yawn, "that your 
Committee is calling for an immediate end to the bombing of de- 
fenseless civilians?" 

"Oh, no," said Dr. Pettibone, aghast. "A spirit of fair play mere- 
ly requires thai we declare war on them first." 

Several reporters who had jotted "left-wing dove' 'in their note- 
ooks scatchcd that out to write in "right-wing hawk." 

"The Fair Play for North Vietnam Committee wants us to 
declare war on North Vietnam?'" asked a reporter 

Fair play is fair play," said Dr. Pettibone, nodding. "The rules 
dI war are perfectly clear: you may bomb anyone you wish, as 
long as you have declared war on him. But to go around dropping 
bombs "ii people you are not at war with is sneaky, infamous and 
downright unfair. Bemember," he added with a frown, "Pearl

Practically speaking, inquired a reporter, how did The Fair

that we declare wai on North Vietnam."

Gents End Season 

The Centenary Gents ended their season with a loss to Louisi- 
ana Tech and then to Hardin-Simmons. When the Gents went to 
Tech, many supporters followed the team in hope that the "midgets" 
had jelled enough to overcome the great height disadvantage. Again 
the Gents were crushed on the boards and again Centenary was the 
victim of Tech, 112-93. Centenary got in foul trouble early in the 
game and Charles Bishop, the 7' freshman, just couldn't seem to 
do anything wrong. The Bulldogs pulled away to an early 10-1 
lead, but Ward and Blankenship quickly tied the score at 13-all 
with their usual long bombs. Tech, calling on Bishop for rebound- 
ing and scoring, pulled ahead 48-37 at intermission. 

During the second half the Dogs 
used different tactics and started 
bombing from the outside. Reserve 
forward Mike Scally came in during 
the second half and hit his all-time 

high as a Gent by bagging 27 points. 
Andy Fullerton fouled out with 8:57 
to go, and Gale left the game with 
3:22. With these two men gone, all 
the beef the Gents had was sitting on 
the bench. The G.S.C. champions 
put all 5 starters in double figures, 
while the Gents could manage only 

After the loss to Tech, the Gents 
went to Abilene, Texas to play Hardin- 
Simmons for their final game. In the 
first meeting between the two teams, 
the Cowboys had to go into over- 
time to handle the scrappers. This 
was not the case this particular night 

as the Texans handled the Gents with 
their powerful rebounding and bal- 
anced scoring attack. The game was 
strictly run and gun, and by the 113- 
98 score, you wonder when the teams 
stopped. The closest the Gents could 
manage to get was 16-13 and then 
Sylvester Neal and company took over. 
The Cowboys held a comfortable lead 
at half and just kept pushing and 
pushing. It was clear that the Gent' 
main weakness was on the boards, as 
Neal and crew cleared the boards for 
74 rebounds, compared to 37 for the 
Gents. Larry Ward proved to be the 
only threat for Sigler's crew, as 
he coughed up 30 points. Blanken- 
ship and Fullerton each had 14. And 
so ends the "Gent Season" — 9 wins, 
17 losses — bright things are in the 



The Gent's record this year was 
not one to put on the front page of 
Sports Illustrated or Newsweek, but 
it was not a horrible one. At the first 
of the year many people felt the Gents 
wouldn't win five games, but the 
scrappy sophomores and juniors sur- 
prised many people. Nine wins does 
not set the world on fire in the win 
column, but look at the competition 
they played. Houston, Cincinnati, 
T.C.U., Southern Illinois, O.C.U., and 
Louisiana Tech were good clubs — 
real good clubs. In each of the games 
it was apparent that the main differ- 
ence was on the boards. Game after 
game the taller players just dominated 
the boards. What was the main rea- 
son? Exactly this — the tallest Gent 
starter was 6'4" and the average 
height was 6'1". Ours could have been 
the smallest major team in the U.S. 
In almost every contest the Gents 
were able to shoot as well as their 
opponents, from both the field and 
free throw line. The guards were able 
to hit from the outside most of the 
time, but if they missed, you might 
as well forget a second shot. 

Now let's turn to another aspect of 
basketball at Centenary — the fresh- 
men. The freshmen team was down 
right huge. Very, very few times this 
year did the Gentlets get licked on 
the boards, but the outside shooting 
was not quite as strong as the varsity's 

Put together this year's sophomores 
and juniors, add the experience they 

have gained, add some huge fresh- 
men, throw in a few junior college 
boys, and, by george, the Gents look 
good next year. 


La. Tech gets two as Gents Andy Fullerton (40) and Mike 
Scally (33) look on. The Tech Bulldogs won the game 112-93. 

Men's Intramurals 
In last week's intramural action, the 
TKE 1st team beat the Ineligibles 56- 
27. Cossas continued their winning 
streak by licking the KA team 42-22. 
The DA's had little trouble in beating 
the TKE 2nd team 53-21. The Facul- 
ty, playing with a full bench, bested 
the Zoo 51-36. After a slow start, the 
Rotary 1st team wiped out the Do- 
Its 73-31, even though the Do-Its 
reached their season high in points 
scored. In the last game of the week, 
the Kappa Sigma 1st team outlasted 

the Go-Rillas 89-19. By the time the 
next paper comes out, either Wallace's 
team or the Sig's wil not be unde- 


In Tuesday night's action, the All- 
Star team top Zeta Grey 29-5. The 
Chio Wimps lost to the Zeta Blues 

In tennis, Janet Talley won the 
singles tournament. Nelrose Anderson 
won the W.R.A. bowling tournament 
held Friday afternoon. 




There will be a pizza eating contest between the 
DA's, KA's, Kappa Sig's, and TKE's, on FRIDAY, 
MARCH 10, at 7:00 p.m. Seniors especially are 
invited for a post G. R. E. celebration. There 
wil1 be free refreshments for those who come 
to cheer their entry on to victory and to 
probable, "mild" indigestion.

A Word On 


Mid-semester is near, as evidenced by a heightened intensity 
of tests, papers, and projects. Perhaps it is unfortunate that our 
academic year is divided into grading periods, and that we as 
students are classified according to grades. 

In emphasizing that "Colleges must get bigger but seem small- 
er". Dr. Charles Muscatine of the University of California at Berk- 
ley, recently suggested several remedial possibilities. One of these 
is "Relieve students of routine examining and grading requirements, 
and have students evaluated in small groups to adapt to real life 

Dean Marsh recently commented on how much the student is 
tied to the classroom, and remarked that possible solutions might 
be more faculty-student discussions and "general knowledge" tests. 

These are the academic ideals for which many educators are 

A more realistic suggestion may be found in the University's 
Select Committee on Education's report in which they suggested: 
"A more refined system used optionally would not be incompatible 
with continuance of the present system elsewhere. (Plus grades 
would add three-tenths of a grade point per unit; minus grades 
would subtract the same amount, under the new system. For 
example, C plus would be 2.3, C minus 1.7, while an unsuffixed C 
wounld remain at 2 points per unit.)

The Conglomerate, 

An 1855 Texas newspaper, said 
Richard Hofstadter in his recent talk 
here, was so paranoid as to allege that 
"the monarchs of Europe and the 
Pope of Rome are plotting our poli- 
tical disaster." 

Just a typically crazy Texas idea, 
no doubt, that any European monarch 
like, say, Napoleon III could possibly 
have designs on any part of the world 
near Texas. And as for the Pope no 
one really believes the lunatic fantasy 
that the Papacy in the mid-nineteenth 
century was engaged in a bitter strug- 
gle to maintain its temporal power at 
all costs. 

Perhaps Hofstadter wants us to 
think he is engaged in a conspiracy to 
strangle the unbiased recording of 
history, no? 

Name Withheld 

Dear Editors: 

After reading the last few issues of 
the Conglomerate, I find that your 
treatment of the Centenary College 
Cafeteria is at best unfortunate, both 
for the Conglomerate's philosophy of 
operation and for the college at large. 
Perhaps a more accurate description 
of the Conglomerate's attitude is found 
in the term "banal." As a misdirected 
.ittempt at humor in a campus-wide 
issue your treatment has revealed, 
much to your own discredit, a myopic 
deficiency in journalistic creativity 
at a time when such a position might 
well be called outright irresponsibility. 

There appears to be little objective 
consideration of factual information 
about the cafeteria in your crusade 
for better meals. Indeed, I dare say 
thai a study of factors, financial and 
nutritional, related to the cafeteria's 
operation completely escaped your 
consideration. Such a study might 
have revealed the increased difficult)' 
of providing quality food on a fixed 
income basis in the light ol rising 
osts. I consider your treatment 
of this problem to be in extremi Ij 
poor taste (no pun intended). 

I do not .1. w. ., retrai ti.ui of the 

obviously subjective treatment you 
have given the cafeteria. Such a de- 
mand would heap insult upon injury 
as far as the cafeteria staff is con- 
cerned. However, I strongly urge, 
as a student who reads the Conglom- 
erate with concern and who eats in 
the cafeteria with some degree of 
regularity, that future attempts to 
tackle campus-wide "problems" be 
approached from a decidedly more 
critical point of view. 

With best intentions, 
Will Finnin, student 

To The Editor: 

Humor is part of college campus 
life, and I would like to express my 
appreciation to the Conglomerate for 
exemplifying this aspect of college 
life. The Conglomerate of March 3rd 
brought a great deal of conversation 
and laughter to the Centenary 
campus. The cafeteria "menu" was a 
well-thought-out-plan and pertinent 
example of the humor I am speaking 
of. Comments on the article have been 
for the most part very favorable, and 
I found this paper very enjoyable to 
say the least. I am sure most students 
would enjoy more articles along the 
sarcastic nature which was produced 
in the March 3rd issue. 

Thank you, 
John S. Morrison 

The Editor: 

Several days ago I was sent a 
notice \ i.i campus mail that a com- 
mittee meeting which I was to attend 
was cancelled. It does not seem un- 
usual that the message was lost and 
I waited thirty minutes for a meeting 
which did not occur. . .1 only have 
one question: Whal happens to .ill 
die correspondence put in the box 
labeled "Campus Mail?" Does some 
little urchin take i sadistic pleasure in 
knowing thai dozens of people are 
waiting for meetings which will nevei 
take place? < h does someone jusl 
like to gel mail? Or should the lot 
be re-labeled "Food for a Fire?"

Co-ed Finds Duties 
Keep Her Busy 


When the Miss Centenary crown was placed atop the light 
brown hair of Cheryl Maresh last October, there began a whirlwind 
of activities that has kept the twenty-year-old coed busy beyond 
her belief— and there doesn't seem to be any let-up anytime soon. 
In addition to holding down her duties as Miss Centenary, Cheryl 
is an active member of Alpha Xi Delta and sings with the Centenary 
College Choir. 

Soon after her crowning, Cheryl 
was a featured guest of the Natchi- 
Christmas Festival, and parti-

Blazer, Naturally 

That old traditionalist, the navy blue blaz-

Now it's double breasted and set off with 
twin rows of white pearl buttons. This is 
the cool and correct blazer the leaders

Only rarely in the dull, sober, often dreary and mo- 
notonous life of studious Centenary students (all of whom 
apply their noses to the academic grindstone) does some- 
thing with the thrills, excitement, fast action, and exotic 
splendor of DUTY'S pop up. Named recently as one of 
America's 10 most friendly people, the proprietor of said 
establishment invites all Centenary students to discover 
the "intellectually stimulating atmosphere" of the finest 
pizza house on this side of the Rhine River.

Treasurer's Report — Alton McKnight. 
Alton reported that the amounts 
in the budget remain the same as last 
week with one exception— the money 
allotted to the playhouse was paid in 
full in the fall semester and should 
not have been paid again this spring. 
Consequently, $976 will be returned 
to the general fund. The Senate 
voted unanimously to accept the pro- 
posed Student Activity Fee budget. 
Alton added that the business office 
was generally pleased with the man- 
agement of the Activity Fee money.

Debators Will Go To 
National Meeting 


While the rest of the campus enjoys a 5-day Easter vacation, 
four Centenary Debaters and one faculty member will be making 
last minute preparations for the National Pi Kappa Delta Conven- 
tion to be held March 22 through April 2 in Whitewater, Wisconsin. 

This group, composed of Leonard 
Critcher, Alton McKnight, John Walk- 
er, Pat Bissonnet, and Miss "A," are 
Centenary's representatives to the con- 
vention. Pi Kappa Delta, the largest 
honorary forensic fraternity in the 
nation, holds its convention bi-annual- 
ly on a campus where there is a chap- 
ter of the organization. Each conven- 
tion draws about 2,000 representatives 
from die various Pi Kappa Delta 
chapters across the country. 

On the campus of Wisconsin State 
University where the convention will 
occur, our representatives will parti- 
cipate in various business meetings, at 
which plans for the forthcoming year 
will be made. Pi Kappa Delta is re- 
sponsible for choosing the National 
Collegiate Debate Proposition each 
year, and for handling and issuing 

tournament invitations for its mem- 
bers. In addition, the organization 
publishes a magazine which keeps its 
members in touch with chapters on 
other campuses, and gives them valu- 
able information on the debate topic. 

Centenary student representatives 
to the convention will participate in 
eight rounds of debate, as well as 
attending the business meetings of Pi 
Kappa Delta. The debates, on this 
Mar's Collegiate Debate Proposition 
"Resolved: That the United States 
should substantially reduce its foreign 
policy commitments," will be the 
climax of a year's hard work for the 
Centenary debate team. 

Good luck to this group, not only 
at the convention, but also on die 
mid-term exams they will miss while

Coach Mooty Posts 
'67 Baseball Roster 

Coach Doug Mooty opened his 1967 baseball campaign with 
IS players listed on his roster. Returning lettermen include: Charlie 
Grigsby (RED EYE), David Rasinger, Jeff Victory, James Gillespie, 
Dellis Germanr), Ronnie Warren, and Phil Jennings. Lowell Mask, 
who was sidelined last year with a bad knee, returned to action at 
his first base position. Rill McRride, a transfer last year from Drake, 
has been looking good in the infield as well as Robert McDonald, 
a transfer this year from Panola Junior College. "Cool Rob Lange" 
has been impressive in the early practices in his bid for an infield 
position. Newcomers David Tadich, Ed Shiro, Sonny Moss, Chuck 
Van Steen, and James Roddie round out the squad and should pro- 
vide needed help in the outfield 

The Gents look strong this year, and 
the only really doubtful position seems 
to be on the pitching mound. James 
Gillespie is the only returning pitcher, 
and he didn't pitch a great deal last 
year. James went 18 innings and won 
the only two games he pitched. He 
also had a very impressive summer 
program on the mound, losing only 
one game. Two freshmen, James 
Smith and Mike Reeves, looked good 
11 baseball, but neither has 
pitched under college conditions. 

The Gents had one of the best 

'Centenary last year and 

wound up with an 18-6 record. Coach 

Mooty thinks this years' club will 

have a very strong infield, Coach says. 

"This year's club should have a better 
defensive infield than last year's." 
Mooty also emphasized that in order 
for the Gents to have a good season, 
they are going to have to be strong 

"I beg your pardon, but you 
can't have that ball!" (Kappa Sig 
I vs. Wallace's Boys).

Men's Intramural 

In last week's intramural games, 
Wallace's beat the Grey Ghosts 88-13 
as Loren and his club held the op- 
ponents scoreless the second half. In 
the second game of the night, the TKE 
first team beat the Blackhawks 48-34. 
In a hard-fought defensive game, the 
Rinky Dinks outclassed the Ineligibles 
29-18. Cossas continued its winning 
ways by smacking TKE II 46-23. The 
Faculty looked good in their 48-33 
win over the KA's. In the second game 
of a twin-bill, Rotary I had to fight 
the whole way to down the fast im- 
proving DA's. The Do-Its were again 
taken advantage of, this time by the 
Zoo 76-32. 

In the game of the week, Wallace's 
team proved to be the better club in 
their fight with the Sig first team. 
Alan Cooper led both teams with 21 
points, with 15 coming in the first 
half. After the first twenty minutes 
had gone, Wallace and crew held a 
33-21 advantage. When the second 
half opened, it looked as if leaders 
were going to make it a run-away as 
Cooper and company kept dominat- 
ing the boards. With 11 minutes 
showing on the clock, Loren's club 
held a comfortable 14 points lead. 
Then the Sigs got hot and narrowed 
it to 5 with 7:20 remaining. The 
"No-names" were able to hold off the 
comeback and maintain their unde- 
feated status. 

Coach Harless announced that in- 
tramural tennis and softball rosters 
are due by April 1. 


Final results of the basketball series 
is as follows: 

Zeta Grey — first 

Faculty — second 

Independents — third 

Chi Omega — fourth 

Janet Talley won the paddleball 

Badminton rosters are up and first 
games should be played by Tuesday.

student bodies, glide to election on 
the merits of a ghost-written platform 
or a fraternity pin. 

Let each candidate be given a 
chance to show his relative ability to 
qualify for the Student Senate. If this 
chance is provided, better representa- 
tion will be afforded to all students. 

—Taylor Caffery 

To the Editor, 

Student Senate Elections will begin 
on April 12th. What, one wonders, is 
going to motivate those who do cast 
ballots to vote for a particular candi- 
date? The most honest answer is that 
usually students vote for a member of 
their favorite Creek organization, or 
maybe for the best-dressed candidate. 
But not always. 

When one candidate is found, often 
in the All-College Convocation pro- 
ceeding the election, to be overwhelm- 
ingly superior to all others, most stu- 
dents vote for him without regard to 
his grooming habits or his club mem- 

However, speeches in the convo- 
cation are limited to candidates for 
the offices of the Student Senate. The 
candidates for eight Senatorships are 
nol given a chance to speak before 
open-minded students. This chance 
should be made available. 

The best time to judge a candidate 
is when he is in a situation that com- 
pels liim to think quickly, to act or 
speak without preparation. This situa- 
tion exists at Issues and Opinions s,

Dear Editor, 

In the last edition of the Conglom- 
erate a letter from a student brought 
out the fact that "little objective 
consideration of the factual informa- 
tion" had been given when writing 
the "cafeteria article." It seems to us 
that the author of the letter had him- 
self given little objective consideration 
to the article or its intentions. Much 
had been said around campus about 
the cafeteria; this article was what 
the students wanted to see. The ar- 
ticle was not intended to be factual. 
Satire, if he will recall, is the twisting 
of truths. Obviously, this article was 
not meant to be a detailed economic 
survey of rising food costs with rela- 
tions to the Centenary campus. 

Perhaps the author of the letter 
himself is guilty of the accusation 
which he "with best intentions" aimed 
at the Conglomerate staff. 


Four Interested Students

Loose To 

While most people were home en- 
joying their Easter vacation last 
Thursday, the Gent baseball team was 
hard at work with a twin-bill with 
Northwestern State College. Maybe 
the Gents should have been at home 
as the Demons swept two from 
Mooty's band 4-0, and 8-2. North- 
western simply overpowered the Gents 
with their strong pitching and equally 
strong hitting. James Gillespie started 
the first game and gave up 7 hits be- 
fore Ed Shiro came on in relief. The 
main difference in the game appeared 
to be at the stick where the Gents 
managed only two singles. In the sec- 
ond game the hitting picked up some- 
what as Lowell Mask doubled, and 
Dcllis Germann, David Basinger, 
James Smith, and Bob Lange all 
singled. In that game the Gents used 
an array of pitchers, but couldn't 
seem to find the right combination. 

ished third in balance beam, third in 
horse vault, third in parallel bars, and 
third in AU-Around. Nancy Kotsch 
I fourth in parallel bars and 
Linda Stephenson finished fourth in 
balance beam. Two of Centenary's 
gymnasts were suspended for a co- 
ordination problem, Mamie Bankson 
and Janie Speaks. Mary Traweek rep- 
resented Centenary as a judge. 




This year's golf team began playing 
a few weeks ago and so far have not 
been real impressive. In the Hatties- 
burg tournament, the linkers finished 
11th. In the L.S.U. tournament, which 
was divided into the Varsiyt and 
Freshmen division, the freshman made 
a good showing by placing fifth. In a 
dual with Northwestern the Gents lost 
17-10, but freshman Buddy Lockett 
was medalist. This year's squad is 
composed of Buddy Lockett, Larry 
and Terry Stevens, Elmo Cox, Jimmy 
Brown, Bob Monsted, and Guy Bent.

Lively became the 1967 Mid

Or: Much Ado About Nothing 

This week our column is dedicated to an inspiring chapter in 
the life of that all-American intellect, Vera Voter. This is Vera's 
first semester at our fine school, and therefore her first experience 
with a campus election. Because she is new and has no strong opin- 
ions of her own, Vera is in danger of being caught up in the tide of 
popular opinion. 

It all started a few days ago when Vera realized (she's very 
observant) that there were many brightly-colored posters and ban- 
ners all over campus. These were so pretty that she just couldn't 
wait to vote for all those nice names. Within a few days, the idea 
came to Vera that perhaps she couldn't vote for everybody. She had 
discovered that there was more than one candidate for each office. 
How could she ever make up her mind? 

Then came the day when everybody in the whole school had to 
sit in the gym and listen to the candidates talk. Here the ones who 
made the most points with Vera were the ones with the shortest 
speeches. It seems that she was impatient to get to her daily sun- 
bath, and long speeches were messing up her schedule tre- 

Well, those speeches during her sunbathing-time had so com- 
pletely upset Vera that she forgot all about the campaign until it 
was actually election day. She knew it was election day, because, 
as she was walking out of the cafeteria after breakfast, she had 
trippd over a big sign that said "CAMPUS ELECTION TODAY." 
(She suffered no ill effects other than a bruised shin and a slight 
uneasiness about her sunbath.) Assuming from the sign that a 
campus election was about to take place, Vera once again became 
enthusiastic about the question of whom to vote for. 

All eagerness now, Vera ran to the Sub to vote. Unhappily, 
she was told that dorm students had to wait until 4:00 p.m. to vote. 
Happily, she saw the bulletin boards with the pictures of all the 
candidates. Let's tune in to some of the thoughts which ran through 
the head of this responsible young citizen: 

"Oh, what a darling boy! I'd vote for him if he were running 
against my own brother. . . .Oh no! Look at that girl's beady eyes. 
You simply can't trust a girl with beady eyes. I shudder to think 
what would happen to the Senate if she were elected. . . .Let's see 
now, I know that boy. He certainly dresses well. He's got just the 
right kind of clothes to wear to Senate meetings. . . .Oh, she'd be 
cool! She's the biggest practical joker on campus. She's just what the 
Senate needs - a spark of fun when their meetings get too serious. 
Wouldn'1 it be a riot if she put a tack in the president's chair? Oh 
•.he is definiteh Senate material; the whole affair would be a real 
drag without her . .Oh no! I just realized I don't know which 
■ re Higma Teta's I'd better run ask Gertrude. She's pinned to 
a Teta and she would know." 

Well \ i ra did asl < •■ rtrude, and Gertrude did tell her. All was 
nd \ era was ready to vote. Due to a long period of delibera- 
tion (a coke date with a 1 1 ta Vera arrived at the polls about two 
minutes before they w< ! ose. Confident in her knowledge of 

doing, s! ballot But poor Vera she was 

destined for a woeful fate. These were her final words as the polls 

"I can't vote because I don't have an activity WHAT??!I?" 


rrange your schedule accordingly, tr\ to listen 
while when the Senate candidates l-

Any election on the Centenary 
campus is indeed a unique experience. 
Certainly tl» Student Senate election 
is by no mr.ms an exception; con- 
Is, it is perhaps the most unique 
of all elections. 

In no other election is so 

Ii said by so many about so 

little. The history of Student Senate 
platforms inevitably repeats itself 
every year. For not only is it a time 
for interested students tn advocate 
the continuance of now existing pro- 
grams, but after elosely following the 

activities of the Senate during thi pasl 
year, a candidate has the opportunity 
foi an analysis and proposed future 
i"i the ■ < 'in ii i v year, Nevertheless, the 

basie issues seldom change. 

Certainly, the Senate has made 
progress over the last year, and there 
must be constant advancement if the 

Senate is going to be "an active (one 
on campus;" certainly the members 
oi the Student Senate "represent" the 

students; certainly the student bodj 

should have more "active participation 
in campus affairs;" . . .certainly Stu- 
dent Senate elections have nol , hang 
edl But perhaps this is fortunate, in 

that there are always those pi

Ii seems that we can look at past 
senate accomplishments only to think 
in terms ol next year, for the 1967 
sen. ile should and can lie one of ex- 
pansion and improvement. Our firmly- 
established forums program is ready 
for new momentum. This year's ex- 
perience in larger-scale entertainment 
has prepared us to make next year's 
entertainment schedule even more ex- 
citing. The small, but significant 
changes in women's dormitory regula- 
tions should motivate more improve- 
ment in the important area of social 

ponsibility. In keeping with cur- 
rent nation-wide trends, the commit- 
tee on academic affairs has worked 
on possible programs to give students 
more voice in academic matters so 
that next year, major attention may 
be directed toward extending our 
academic program to provide for lib- 
eral exploration of interests. Other 
problems that merit increasing atten- 
tion include library' hours, budget 
I campus parking.

"The tractor driver was goggled in

Student government can not, must 
not, be like the tractor or its driver 
that cue nothing for the land or the

and its relation to this concept ,,l 
student government? 

I don't believe that student govern- 
ment here at Centenary has mislaid

Senior Representative 

During the past year I have become 
increasingly interested in the work of 
the Student Senate. This interest was 
in part due to natural curiosity and 
partly due to involvement in programs 
which came directly under its auspic- 
es. I have been a Resident Advisor in 
Rotary Hall this past year and there- 
fore have been concerned with and 
have a working knowledge of all Sen- 
lie legislation undertaken concerning 
the dorm buildings, students and 
rules. I worked with il com- 

mittee which promoted the football 
game between Loyola and Centenary, 
which has been criticized as the worst- 
run program of the year, but has since 
turned into .. success due to the fact 
tli.it in all likelihood we will have a 
Football Club next Fall, 1 also worked 
with the Ad Hoc committee in draw-

I, Patricia Kem, if elected Junior 
Senator will, to the best of my ability, 
fairly represent every member of the 
student body. I will present at the 
Senate meetings not only their ideas 
but also their opinions for discussion 
and action. Also, I will try my best 
to continue some of the programs of 
i lie Senate and to improve them when 

As a member of the Student Senate 
I would encourage any measures 
which would increase the student sup- 
port and participation of the student 
government, especially of the town 
students. The Student Senate was 
not organized to represent and serve 
just the students living on campus, but 
all the students of Centenary College. 
Their job can not be thoroughly ear- 
ned out without the interest and sup- 
port of every student. 

An example of this would be the 
Student Senate elections. Without the 
student co-operation and support of 
these elections, qualified individuals 
cannot t J ind serve the col- 

lege. All students, both town and 
dormitory, should take the time to 
vote in the elections to insure the 
election of those students who wall

Junior Representative 

With the rapidly increasing enroll- 
ment of colleges, and the expanding 
role of students in determining the 
academic and social policies of these 
institutions, the need for effective 
channels of student opinion has be- 
come more evident. In the past year, 
we have seen the efforts of Centen- 
ary's Student Senate directed toward 
this need. 

Tangible evidence of the success 
of the Student Senate can be noted in 
the work of the committee system 
which has been revitalized this year. 
In my position as a member of the 
Entertainment Committee, I have 
ed the contracting of the first 
big-name entertainment on Centen- 
ary's campus. The Chapel Committee 
has made great progress in their at- 
tempt to bring Sunday worship ser- 
vices on our campus. And more 
varied and controversial speakers, 
through the efforts of the Forums 
Committee, have stimulated the stu- 
dents to more diversified thought. 

All of these accomplishments have 
shown progress by our Student Sen- 
vet much more can and must be 
done before our Senate will become

Junior Representative 

The Student Senate has become a 
vital part of student life at Centenary. 
Through its work in the Forums pro- 
gram, Issues and Opinions, and espec- 
ially the Student Activity Fee, the 
Senate has demonstrated its desire to 
satisfy the will and needs of the stu- 
dents. Its primary function is to co- 
ordinate the activities and organiza- 
tions on campus, so that a well-round- 
ed education may be achieved by in- 
terested students. 

However, the success of a working 
student government in fulftfling the 
needs of the students lies in its com- 
munication between the Senate mem- 
bers and the individual students. If 
problems are to be recognized and 
needs fulfilled, then the means of 
communication is the primary factor 
in meeting the situation. The Student 
Government Association can continue 
to achieve great goals in the future 
only if the entire student body is will- 
ing to make the effort through active 

The Senate does not operate within 
itself in its own strength. Essential to 
its success is the dedicated support 
and interest of every student. Our Stu- 
dent Senate can be effective only by 
an ever present awareness of re- 
sponsibility—responsibility on the part 
of every Centenary student and re- 
sponsibility on the part of the Student 

Those ol us who will be juniors

Junior Representative 

At the present time Centenary Col- 
lege is in the process of accentuating 
its dedication to excellence in educa- 
tion. A program of enrichment is pro- 
jecting in many diversified areas with 
one climactic goal — that of making 
Centenary College an institution cap- 
able of furnishing individuals with 
more than the mere "essentials" need- 
ed to meet the dilemma of a complex 
society. In the wake of scientific pro- 
pulsion, it is increasingly essential that 
individual members of society be 
equipped with responsibility to con- 
front problems as "truth" is gained 
through knowledge. Students need in- 
telligence, but a "responsible intelli- 
gence" is called for by social, moral, 
and humanistic problems of this age. 
The Student Senate of Centenary 
College is striving for means of expos- 
ing students to the opportunity of 
gaining responsibility. 

One specific example is that of try- 
ing to place the jurisdiction over male 
conduct in the hands of students them- 
selves in the form of the proposed 
Dormitory Council and Judiciary 

Another step being attempted to 
increase academic excellence is the 
plan to extend library hours to meet 
the needs "f students who have al- 
ready gained a sense of responsibility 
toward such goals. An altempt is being 
made t<> rid the college calendar of the 
many disturbing interruptions of the 
fall senn 

To help the college reach potential 
I desire to ac- 
cepl responsibility or have already 
done so to a certain extent, the Senate 
has Initiated a program scheduled for 
early May, in which outstanding high 
' will be invited to the

PLACE 7th 


In the recent Hattiesburg Tennis 
tournament the netters placed 7th out 
of a possible 11 teams. This does not 
sound real good, but when you con- 
sider that almost all the other teams 
had 6 players that were trying to gain 
points, and that the Gents only had 5, 
you will see that it was not a bad 
showing at all. Gary Sutton, Wayne 
Curtis, and Bob Strayer all drew first 
round byes, but Jimmy Davis and Pete 
Wilcox were not so lucky— they were 
both defeated in first round matches. 
Strayer and Sutton were defeated in 
their semi-finals matches, losing to 
eventual champs. Strayer probably had 
one of the best matches of the day, 
splitting sets and losing the last 6-4. 
Both Sutton-Strayer, and Davis-Curtis 
lost their second round double match- 
es. The netters play McNeese here 


In baseball games last week, the 
Gents again split a double-header — 
this time with Henderson State. James 
Gillespie pitched a very impressive 
3-1 vicory while giving up only 2 hits. 
Highlight of the game was a two 
run homer by first baseman Lowell 
Mask in the 5th inning. Jeff Victory 
returned to his usual center field posi- 
tion after being ill for the past few 

In the second game things weren't 
so bright as the Gents bit the dirt 
by the 2-4 route. Ed Shiro got in 
trouble early in the game and Coach 
"Hotdog" Mooty decided to go with 
James Smith. The visitors didn't treat 
the freshman very nicely — the first 
man up hit a grand slam home run. 
Mike Reeves came in to relieve Smith 
late in the game and didn't give up 
any runs.

In last week's intramural action 
there were some fast and wild games. 
The Gorillas had to battle, but they 
finally beat the Grey Ghosts 39-26. 
The TKE's had a hard time winning 
over the Rinlcy Dinks — they won by 
forfeit. Wallace's team remained un- 
defeated by killing the Blackhawks 
73-32. Although the entire Faculty 
squad was not present, the DA's look- 
ed sharp in their 72-40 romp. In a 
game that brought many laughs, the 
Cossa's Robbers beat the Do-Its 55-28. 
By far this next game has to be the 
upset of the year — The Rotary Zoo 
42, the Rotary 1st team 37. 


Marilyn Padgentt and Betsy Roe 
were the only single winners in the 
recent tennis match with Louisiana 
Tech. The girls play Tech here today. 


The Centenary linksters won their 
second match of the year last week by 
defeating Louisiana Tech 14-4. Buddy 
Lockett was medalist for the second 
time this year with an impressive 69. 
Jimmy Brown was next for Centenary 
with a 72. The Gents seem to be im- 
proving with each match.

Spring came full force to the Centenary Campus. The trees 
were all green; flowers were blooming everywhere. Then on 
Sunday, April 9, at 2:00 p.m. the posters went up. 

On two o'clock that fateful Sunday, the chimes tolled the 
death of routine college life at Centenary, and rang the birth of 
petty rivalries, grievances, and politics. The posters were beautiful 
illustrations of the pettiness of the entire situation. 

Taped in the corridors and on the outside walls of Jackson 
Hall alone were no less than thirty posters crying slogans of 
"Wanted", "Get a good deal", "Promise em anything", and "An 
improvement on a nimprovement". The maze of yellow, blue, green, 
gold, and pink struck the faces of students with the repulsivness 
of the proverbial "pie in the face." 

This editorial is not to completely discredit the democratic 
system of Centenary. Obviously, it must continue. But isn't this 
carrying a good thing just a little too far? How many people actual- 
ly read the posters on which so much valuable time and money 
are spent? 

It appears that the student government elections have degen- 
erated into a race of candidates attempting to surpass the other 
in poser making ability, not a race beween ability to serve, qualifi- 
cations, and personalities as it should be. 

So another student election has passed with almost no extra- 
ordinary events. What will the next be like? Is there a possibility 
of the next campaigns being based entirely on the candidates plat- 
forms and speeches, and choices being made on a mature, intellect- 
ual level. Or will the students of Centenary always play with their 
responsibility of choosing student leaders like a child plavs with 

-_*.' '« 

Now that pink slips are out, one fact emerges clearly: you are 
all going to flunk out of school. 

There are two things you can do about it. First, you can 
marry money. (I don't mean you marry the money itself; I mean 
you marry a person who has money. Weddings between people and 
currency have not been legal anywhere in the United States since 
the Smoot-Hawley Act.) Now, I said you can marry money, but, 
of course, you will not because you are a high-minded, clean-living, 
pure-hearted, freckle-faced American kid. Therefore, to keep from 
flunking, you must try the second method: you must learn how to 
take lecture notes. 

According to a recent survey, eleven out of ten American 
undergraduates do not know the proper way to take lecture notes. 
To illustrate this appalling statistic, let us suppose you are taking a 
course in history. Let us further suppose the lecturer is lecturing 
on the ruling houses of England. You listen intently. You write 
diligently in your notebook, making a topic outline as you have 
been taught. Like this: 

I. House of Plantagenet. 

II. House of Lancaster. 

III. House of York. 

Then you stop. You put aside your pen. You blink back a tear, 
for you cannot go on. Oh, yes, you know very well that the next 
ruling house is the House of Tudor. The trouble is you don't know 
the Roman numeral that comes after III. 

It may, incidentally, be of some comfort to learn that you are 
not the only people who don't know Roman numerals. The fact 
is, the Romans never knew them either. Oh, I suppose they could 
tell you how much V or X were or like that, but when it came to 
real zingers like LXI or MMC, they just flang away their styluses 
and went downtown to have a bath or take in a circus or maybe 
stab Caesar a few times. 

You may wonder why Rome stuck with these ridiculous 
numerals when the Arabs had such a nice, simple system. Well, sir, 
the fact is that Emperor Vespasian tried like crazy to buy the Arabic 
numerals from Suleiman The Magnificent, but Suleiman wouldn't 
do business-not even when Vespasian raised his bid to 100,000 
gold piastres, plus he offered to throw in the Colosseum, the 
Appian Way, and Technicolor. 

So Rome stuck with Roman numerals — to its sorrow, as it 
turned out. One day in the Forum, Cicero and Pliny got to arguing 
about how much is CDL times MVIX. Well, sir, pretty soon every- 
one in town came around to join the hassle. In all the excitement, 
nobody remembered to lock the north gate and - wham! before 
you could say ars longa - in rushed the Goths, the Visigoths, and 
the Green Bay Packers! 

Well, that's the way the empire crumbles, and I have digressed. 
The moral of this little tale? Copy your neighbor's notes! 
(Editor's Note: This article was taken, with several revisions, from 
one of Max Shulman's "On Campus" columns.) 


This week's award goes to Jackson Hall. In case you haven't 
heard, a group of well-known archaeologists have cited this "ancient 
relic once located on the campus of Centenary College" as the next 
ruin into which they will delve to find clues to the cultural habits 
and behavior of our ancestors. (Wait 'til they find out that good old 
IH. is still in use. They'll have to dig between classes.) 


Since this is National Nonconformist Week, we suggest that v. « i 
all go out and buy Brand X.

Gym Team Takes 
Second To SU 

The Centenary Gals barely missed the national championship 
in the NCAA gymnastics meet last Saturday in Carbondale, Illinois. 
Southern Illinois, the meet host, was heavily favored to repeat as 
national champs, but the Gals made an excellent showing, losing 
only 137.63-135.35. The difference in the scoring came in two events 
that Southern Illinois was allowed to include as the host team, 
those events being trampoline and tumbling. 
Coach Edwards was very proud was third in floor exercises, fifth in 

of his girls, as four of them landed 
All-American berths. Janie Speaks 
won the horse vault and floor exer- 
cise, was third in tumbling, and fin- 
ished fourth in the All-Round total. 
Susan McDonald was first in the un- 
even parallel bars, second in the 
balance beam, third in vaulting, sixth 
in floor exercise, and finished second 
in the all-round scores. Karen Lively 

the horse vault, and finished seventh 
in the uneven parallel bars. Marianne 
Woolner took home sixth place honors 
in the uneven parallel bars and 
seventh in the balance beam. Mari- 
anne ranked 10th in the all-round 
totals. All four girls were named to 
the All-American team by the Associ- 
ated Press and United Press Inter-

Gents Win Two From 
Southern State 

The Gents baseball team overpow- 
ered the Mule Riders from Southern 
State to take a doubleheader 5-2, and 
8-4. Mike Reeves won the first game 
for the Gents allowing only five hits 
and James Gillespie did the same in the 
second game. Charlie (Red Eye) and 
"Cool" Bob Lange proved to be the 
power hitters in both games. Charlie 
rapped out 4 hits including 2 doubles 
for his 7 trips to the plate. Lange, hit- 
ting a cool .600, belted 3 hits in his 
5 times to the plate. Two of these 
hits were home runs, one being hit 
with one on in the sixth inning of the 
first game and the other a soler in the 
fourth innings of the second game. 
The team travels to Arkadelphia to

La. Tech Defeats 
Girls' Team 

The Centenary Girls tennis team 
went down to defeat to Louisiana 
Tech for the second time this year. 
Jeannie Butler, Marilyn Padgett, and 
Connie Pickrell each won their singles 
match. Betsy Roe split sets and was 
in the third when she developed a 
muscle cramp and had to default. 
Janet Talley and Butler were the only 
winners for the girls in doubles beat- 
ing Tech 6-4, and 6-4. 

La. Tech 

Last week the Centenary tennis 
team did something that hadn't been 
done in a long time — they beat 
Louisiana Tech, 4 to 3. Behind the 
efforts of Bob Strayer and Gary Sut- 
ton, the Gents handed Tech its first 
loss of the season. Strayer, behind 
5-0 in the first set, rallied to win 9-7 
and then easily took the second 6-2 
from a hot-headed bulldog. Gary Sut- 
ton, playing No. 2, won his match 
with a 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 decision. Jimmy 
Davis, Wayne Curtis, and Pete Wil- 
cox lost their singles match, but each 
was close. Strayer and Sutton had 
to go three sets before winning their 
doubles 7-5, 4-6, 6-2. Jimmy Davis 
and Wayne Curtis made it look easy 
as they swept their doubles match 
6-2, 6-3. Coach Harless feels the 
Gents are playing much better than 
they were the first time the schools 



Well if anyone ever doubted that 
Wallace's team was the best in the 
league, all doubts were removed last 
week. In games that were played back 
to back Wallace's team beat the Sigs 
twice. Here is a quick rundown of 
how the playoffs went. Wallace beat 
the DA's 78 to 61, Cossa's Robbers 
beat the TKE's 50-37, Kappa Sig 
ousted the Zoo 71-41, and Rotary I 
swept by the Gorillas to complete the 
first night's action. The next night 
Wallace's boys crushed Cossa's 73 to 
52, and the Sigs beat Rotary 78 to 61 
despite a fantastic performance by 
Pete Wilmox. Cossa's eliminated Rot- 
ary by the score of 46 to 32. The 
winners in the brackets played and 
Wallace came out on top by the 68-58 
route over the Sigs. Alan Cooper and 
Brooks Van Hom led the way with 
20 and 17 points for Wallace while 
Larry Osteen was keeping the Sigs 
in the game with his 19 points. The 
next night the Sigs had to play Cossa's 
to determine which team would play 
Walace's for the championship. Larry 
Osteen again led the way as the Sigs 
won 61 to 47. In the championship 
game it was close the whole way, but 
Cooper and company kept their com- 
posure and eaked out a 53 to 51 vic- 
tory to remain undefeated for the 
year. Cooper tallied 19 and Jeff Vic- 
tory added 14 for the Sigs.

Or: Much Ado About Nothing 

Well, another week has finally dragged by. Since it's Friday, 
and you're all dog-tired, and you're reading this column, I know 
you're all looking forward to being completely engulfed on the 
tidal waves of hilarity. If you are expecting any such feat this week, 
forget it! Instead, you are going to be exposed to a much-needed 
lesson in advanced grammar. This lesson is primarily designed to 
benefit the girls on campus, because I have noticed that often 
they don't say what they mean, they say what they don't mean, 
or the ysay what they mean and everyone else interprets it as 
what they don't mean at all. (Note: Although this is mainly for 
the girls, boys will not be stopped from reading further.) Now, 
here it is— a lesson in how to conjugate irregular verbs: 

(1) I am sparkling; you are unusually talkative; she is bombed. 

(2) I am righteously indignant; you are annoyed; she is 

(3) I am fastidious; you are fussy; she is like a neurotic 

(4) I have reconsidered it; you have changed your mind; 
she has gone back on her word. 

(5) I am beautiful; you have quite symmetrical features; she 
isn't bad looking if you like that type. 

(6) I am well-proportioned; you carry your weight well; she 
is fat. 

(7) I am an epicure; you are a gourmet; she is a pig. 

(8) I am fashionable; you are practical; she has had that dress 
since the eighth grade. 

(9) I am very busy; you rationalize; she never studies. 

(10) I have- about me something of the subtle, haunting, mys- 
terious fragrance of the Far East; your perfume has 
spoiled; she has B.O. 


For once, give waj t oyour natural tendencies. Be hateful and

Born April 21, 1868, in New York, Alfred Maurer was trained 
in lithography. Having studied at the National Academy of Design, 
at the Academie Julian in Paris, and in 1901 at the Pennsylvania 
Academy, Maurer was awarded a Gold Medal Award at the Carne- 
gie International Exhibition. 

1900-1910 was a period in art when many American artists 
brought the news of fauvism from Paris to the United States. 
Maurer was included among these followers of the Fauves. (Trans- 
lated from French, "fauves" means wild beasts. The Fauves are 
characterized by brilliant, often shocking color and by absence of 
volume. Matisse is the best-known of them. 

In 1909, Maurer exhibited with John Marin at Stieglitz's gallery 
in New York. John Canady, in the 1959 issue of Art in America, 
discusses this show of Maurer and Marin in his article, "New Talent 
Fifty Years Ago": ". . . Maurer seemed to me at the time not only 
the most courageous new talent of them all, but the most stimu- 
lating." Unfortunately, however, Mauren is considered by most 
critics as "emotionally flat." 

"Still Life with Tureen," given to the library in 1962 by Dr. 
David Kimball, is a sturdy example of the coloring which distin- 
guishes the Fauves. Pleasing to the eye, the still life abounds with 
cheerful, warm colors.

Doubleheader Is Split 
With Southern State 

The Gents split a double header with Southern State last Mon- 
day. The first game saw the Gents win behind the pitching and 
hitting of James Gillespie. James, a sophomore from Shreveport, 
allowed only 5 hits in his 3-2 victory. Ronnie Warren furnished the 
first run with a first inning home run. Cool Bob and Dellis Germann 
came up with big hits that drove in the other runs. While enjoying 
a fine day on the mound, James also had a good game at the plate 
collecting 2 hits. 

At a game that started at 7 under 
the lights, the Cents again played 
well, but this time the breaks just 
weren't there. James Smith started 
for the Gents, but after being hit hard 
on the hand in the 3rd inning, he was 
forced to leave. It was later discovered 
that he had a broken hand, which 
will definitely put a hinge in the 
pitching. Ed Shiro then came on and 

pitched a fine game. Numerous times 
men were on base, but Ed kept his 
cool and managed to give up only 1 
run. Shiro lined a double to center 
to drive in a run and "Red Eye" 
Grisby had a perfect night, going 3 
for 3. Cool Bob and Jeff Victory also 
collected hits, as did Robert Mc- 
Donald. It was a tuff loss— oh yes, the 
score was 3-2 in favor of S.S. 

To Hold 

Members of Centenary's Women's 
Gymnastic Team are conducting a 
clinic and exhibition in St. Paul and 
Minneapolis, Minnesota, to stimulate 
interest in the final Pan-American 
trials to be held there in July. The 
girls, Mr. Edwards, and J. V. Jones, 
their pianist, are flying from Shreve- 
port on Thursday, April 20th, and will 
return on Sunday, April 23rd. 

Diane Masse and Susan McDonnell 
competed in the North American 
Championships held in Chicago last 
weekend. Diane copped 4th on beam, 
and 7th in all-round, while Susan won 
3rd in bars and vaulting, 4th in free 
exercise, and 5th in all-round. Mr. 
Edwards was exceedingly pleased with 
both girls' performances. 

Last week the team was privileged 
to have Deitar Schultz, the German 
National Trampoline Champion, visit 
on campus. The girls are diligently 
practicing in preparation for the Na- 
tional Championships to be held in 
Natchitoches, Louisiana on April 4th, 
5th, and 6th. 


The Gents won two dual meets 
last week in tennis. Here is how they

As you can see, the team did not

and the over-all record is 4 wins and 
3 losses for the year.

Intramural baseball started last 
week with some weird scores being 
recorded. The TKE's started things 
off by smashing the DA's. The fresh- 
men then killed the Diner's Club by 
the score of 14 to 2. The KA's came 
up with some strong hitting and best- 
ed the Sigs 12-8. Stick's had little 
trouble with the Gorillas winning 12- 
5. In games played this week the Sig's 
won their first game of the year with 
an 15 to 6 decision over the Diner's 
Club. The Freshmen suffered their 
first loss falling to Rotary 5 to 4. In- 
tramural tennis begins this week and 

each person participating is urged to 
complete the matches as soon as 
possible. The sweepstakes is still up 
for grabs. Intramural badminton 
should be completed as soon as pos- 


Due to the small turn out in the 
recent riflery tournament the only 
three girls that showed up received 
first, second, and third places. In in-

Omega's, behind the pitching of Janet 
Talley, beat the Zeta's 18-6. Other 
winners for the week included Millan- 
cy's girls. Games begin at 5 on Tues- 
day and Thursday at Hardin field and 
the baseball field.

The news is out' Next year, twenty or so girls will be granted 
nivilege of residing in an honors dormit.r. \i first the proh-

agreed to step aside. They are actually ready to give up East 
Colonial Hall, and you know bow much it means to them. (This just 
that true Southern chivalry is not dead, even in a

At last the Centenary cafeteria is being enlarged to accommodate the growing number of stu- 
dents. Construction has already begun, and it is scheduled to be completed when the cafeteria opens 
next fall on Sunday, September 2. The construction cost is estimated at $171,000, plus $75,000 for 
equipment. New additions will include (1) a completely new and separate dining room and serving 
area, and (2) three private dining rooms. This means that of the three there will be two student din- 
ing rooms, but only one will be open for breakfast. The private dining rooms will include small, 
extra-nice room for small dinners; a medium-size room (40 - 60) people); and a larger room which will 
serve about a hundred people. 

The decor of these rooms is still 
being planned, and Mrs. Hazzard asks 
that students show their interest by 
suggesting names for the three rooms. 
These rooms may be used for such 
things as alumni meetings, guests of 
the president, Student Senate meet- 
ings, Methodist Conference meetings, 
etc. Special service will be available, 
if pre-scheduled, in these three private 
rooms. Mrs. Hazzard hopes not only 
that these additions will alleviate the 
space problem, but also that the cafe- 
teria will solve many problems created 
by limited space and facilities in the 

In addition to enlarging the cafe- 
teria, the kitchen will be remodeled 
and some badly-needed equipment 
will be purchased. New equipment 
will include three 40-gallon capacity 
steam kettles, a pressure cooker, and 
an institutional-size electric skillet. It 
is interesting to note that this year is 
the first year that the cafeteria has 
had either a toaster or a griddle. The 
bakers are especially pleased with the 
plans for a completely new bake shop. 
The dishroom boys are thrilled with 
tin- prospect of a new "flight-type" 
dishwasher and garbage disposal sys- 
tem. The present dishwasher, which 
is twenty years old, was removed 
from Ft. Polk when the cafeteria 
modeled in 1956. The staff is 
also looking forward to tin- addition 
of another storeroom and additional 
in and deep-freeze units to 
supplement the limited facilities now 

Then are thirty-six full-time em- 
ployees in tin department, and two 
"I tin home economics 

graduates. ' I tin bakers has 

In ihe i il' i' Mi since 
her high school days, when she work- 
■ il there part-timi I ia em- 

lei the new minimum 

increase in the cost of the department, 
which the administration offset by 
discontinuing Sunday night meals. By 
cutting out these meals, it was possible 
to eliminate two full-time employees. 
No one was fired, but two employees 
who left just weren't replaced. Two 
part-time cashiers are the only student 
help in the department. Next year, 
Mrs. Hazzard hopes to be able to use 
more part-time student help. 

Since there will be two serving 
lines next year, the time spent stand- 
ing in line will be considerably de- 
creased. However, this year Mrs. 
Hazzard has often timed students, 
and the time spent from the door of 
the foyer to the table is never more 
than eighteen minutes. The average 
is seven to ten minutes. When the line 
is out to the tree, it is usually because 
the cafeteria has just opened and the 
line has piled up. 

About 1500 meals are served daily 
in the cafeteria. About 300 pounds of 
coffee are served monthly. Students 
drink 1500 half-pints of milk per day, 
and they eat about 75 loaves of bread 
per day. They also eat 360 dozen eggs 
per week. Mrs. Hazzard said that 
punch is very popular, and her "Kool- 
aid Kids" drink twenty to thirty gal- 
lons of il per meal, depending on 
whether it is sunny or cloudy. 

The most popular foods are fried 
chicken, roast beef, and spaghetti. 
The cold plates, which arc new this 
ire also very popular among the 
boys as well as the girls. Cold | 
are offered four or five times a week. 

There are several other new feat- 

i the cafeteria this year. I 

ample, a light breakfast is served 

every day from 9:00 to 10:00. Mrs. 

mmentcd tli.it she knows 

of no othei 1 1 1 tli.it does this as 

p.irt nf tin- regular meal ticket. An- 
new feature is that both boys 

and girls are allowed to wear shorts 
to any meal, if they are neat accord- 
ing to Mrs. Hazzard's standards. The 
one exception, of course, is Sunday 
dinner, when the traditional "Sunday 
best" is still required. 

Some students -may not be aware of 
the special services offered in the 
cafeteria. Mrs. Hazzard, who is a 
member of the American Dietetic 
Association, will prepare modified 
diets on doctor's orders. Sack lunches 
are available for student teachers and 
for those who have jobs. There is also 
a Lost and Found service, and every- 
thing from fraternity pins to slide 
rules have been found in the cafeteria. 
The dishwashers are especially careful 
about looking for things left on the 
trays. When something is found, it is 
put on Mrs. Hazzard's desk, and may 
be called for there. 


This is a reminder that Centen- 
ary College, along with the rest of 
the State of Louisiana, will observe 
Daylight Saving Time from 2:00 
a.m. on the last Sunday of April 
until 2:00 a.m. on the last Sunday 
in October. Clocks should be ad- 
vanced one hour, so that 2:00 a.m. 
April 30 becomes 3:00 a.m.

Gents Win Two 0BU 
In Double Header 

The Centenary Gents finally put 2 games together and came up 
with a double header win. The stick bailers beat Louisiana Tech 
3-0, and 3-2. In the first game Mike Reeves, a Freshmen from 
Bernice, Louisiana, allowed only five hits and walked only one 
man in his win. Ronnie Warren, Robert McDonald, Charlie Grigsby, 
Bob Lang, and Dellis Germann provided the only hits for the 
Gents, but they were enough to give Reeves the win. In the second 
game Charlie Grigsby, who is usually a third baseman and out- 
fielder, had a bad first inning, but hung on to win in a 3 hitter. 
While Charlie was busy pitching, he also helped his own cause at 
the plate, socking 2 hits for his 4 trips at bat. Robert McDonald 
was the only other Gent to bat .500 for the game as he also went 
2 for 4. 

Saturday afternoon Ouachita Bap- 
tist visited the Gent diamond, but no 
fortune was found as the stick men 
for Centenary beat the Baptists 2-1, 
and 3-1. In the first game it was 
James Gillespie getting the win, which 
brings his season to 4 wins and 3 
losses. (All four of his wins have been 
in the last 4 games that he has pitch- 
ed..) Ouachita opened the first inning 
with a run, but the Gents responded 
with two runs in the second. Here's 
a quick rundown of the decisive inn- 
ing: Bob Lange reached first by way 

of a free pass, McBride singled natur- 
ally moving speedy Lange to second, 
Lowell Mask bunted, advancing the 
runners one base each, and Jeff Vic- 
tory singled to drive both in. In the 
night game Mike Reeves made it 
number 4 on his win slate, against 
no losses. Mike allowed only 4 hits, 
while the Gents were obtaining 10 
smackers off the opponents' two hurl- 
ers. Robert McDonald had a great day 
at the home square, punching out 5 
hits in his 7 times at the plate.

3-1). (Photo by Arwood)

It wasn't decided until the last set, 
but the Centenary tennis team beat 
Ouachita Baptist here last week 4-3. 
Here's a quick rundown of each in- 
dividual set. Bob Strayer lost 6-0, 6-0, 
Gary Sutton won 6-4, 6-1, Jimmy 
Davis lost 6-0, 6-3, Pete Wilcox won 
6-3, 6-2, and Wayne Curtis won 6-1, 
6-1. In doubles Sutton and Strayer 
won 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, and Curtis and Wil- 
cox lost 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. In another dual 
match with S.M.U., the team did not 
fare so well— in fact they didn't win a 
single set from the Mustangs. The 
Gents have three dual matches re- 

Last Match 
Of Season 

The Centenary girls' tennis team 
has their last tennis match of the year 
against Southern State here today. 
The Muleriders from Magnolia have 
beaten the girls once, but Janet Tal- 
ley, the No. 1 singles player, was 
unable to attend. Marilyn Padgett, 
Betsy Roe, Connie Pickerell, Jeannie 
Butler, Sally Raggio, and Janet will 
all see action today. 


Contrary to popular thought, 

Dionne Warwick will not be the 

starting center on the basketball 

team next year. 



In intramural Softball last week 
there were some real upsets. Slicks 
beat the Cossa's Robbers by the score 
of 4 to 2, and the Go Rillas bested 
the DA's by the 8 to 3 route. Rotary, 
which had upset the Freshmen the 
week before, was beaten by the Sigs 
17 to 3. In a game that was played 
Friday afternoon, the KA kept their 
composure and beat the Diner's Club, 
which apparently had been out dining 
before the game. Intramural tennis 

matches should be played as soon as 
possible and the scores reported to 
Mr. Harless. 


W.R.A. elections were held Wed- 
nesday with the following results: 

President, Marilyn Padgett; Vice 

President, Gail Morgan; Secretary,

Are You Ready? 

(Editor's Note: College newspapers always furnish the ap- 
propriate, but hackneyed, "end-of-the-year," "face-the-future" type 
editorial when spring rolls around. We decided to reprint an 
editorial — not from a college newspaper, but an outstanding high 
school newspaper (with the editor's permission — which we think 
expresses the situation well.) 

Spring has definitely sprung, and the seniors, more than any- 
one, will vouch for this. With the senior play, finals, and parties 
soon approaching, they just don't have enough time for everything. 

All of this activity signifies one thing: the seniors will soon be 

Are they hapy, satisfied? Are they sad, sentimental? Are they 
ready? ? 

The last question requires a little thought. Most seniors would 
probably answer, "Of course I am." But to be really prepared for 
graduation is to be able to face a more independent life in a chang- 
ing world, full of responsibilities, opportunities, and challenging 
decisions. These decisions will range from what shirt to wear, to 
what courses to take, to what crowd to hang around with. The 
decision is important, and the person behind it is even more im- 
portant. YOU are that person. 

This applies to underclassmen as well; however, as underclass- 
men, we have an opportunity to learn from the seniors' experiences. 
(Even the bad ones. . .) The motivation for their decisions will 
result largely from what they have absorbed during four years 
of high school. 

We arc making - or breaking - a great deal of our lives 
right now. We know to be prepared, to study a little harder, and 
to send in college applications earlier. Our opportunities lie before 
us Mentally we must be ready to accept inevitable challenges 
which we as underclassmen or seniors must face — someday.

To the editor: 

I want to say, before it gets later 
in the year, that I am very proud of 
the innovations made at Centenary, 
primarily those brought about through 
the work of the Student Senate. 
(Whether I have any right to be 
proud of the work, of others is another 
question; but I am proud of Centen- 
ary, nevertheless.) 

Perhaps an outsider can say with 
some objectivity that such a burst of 
creative change and earnest, personal 
interest in the excellence of a school, 
and in the responsible role of students 
within the organized framework of a 
constitution and governing body (and 
not out in the streets) is pretty rare. 
It is rare because of the spirit in 
which it has been done. 

Many students may mistakenly be- 
lieve, as one of the platforms of Sen- 
ate candidates suggested, that these 
innovations just happened to occur to 
a few members of the Senate, and 
were proposed without any concern 
for the needs and wishes of the stu- 
dent body. This is an unfair and 
rather myopic view of the work that 
has been done. On the contrary, I 
have seen those connected with the 
Senate in the last couple of years be- 
come genuinely excited about the 
potential of the Centenary student 
body and the unique potential of a 
liberal arts college, become deeply 
committed to providing good, chal- 
lenging programs, and then willingly 
go through long, painstaking revision 
of the minutiae of the constitution 
simply because they feel it is import- 
ant to the students. 

The Senate has willingly under- 
taken the broadening of its own con- 
cerns and duties, which has meant 
more work for each member, while it 
has given the student body as a whole 
a voice in more than trivial matters. 
And probably few people do realize 
how much extra work this has meant 
for a few people in the Senate. 

Remember when you argue over 
the latest program of the Senate, or 
get heated over what you believe to 
be a mistake, that it is precisely this 
kind of dialogue the Senate has been 
laboring to start. A few years ago 
there was nothing much to talk about 
—no Forums, no academic afafirs com- 
mittee, no ii tivity fee, no Ad Hoc 
committee. . . the list is long. 

This is getting to be a pretty in- 
volved tribu , just too much

Last week proved to be the week 
of rain-outs and last-minute cancel- 
lations. Monday the Gents baseball 
team traveled to Northwestern to play 
a double-header, but just as they were 
ready to take the field, rain started 
pouring, and this ended both games 
for the day. On the same day the 
Demon tennis team was suppose to 
come to Centenary, but for some rea- 
son that is not known, they canceled 
out. Could it be that the Demons 
thought they were a pushover for the 
Gents, since they lost to them the 
first time 6-0? Next week the tennis 
team travels to Arkansas to entertain 
Henderson State and Ouachita Baptist, 
teams that the Gents have beaten 
once before. These are the final two 

meets of the season. 

The Centenary girls' tennis team 
came closer, but still they were 
whipped by the girls from Southern 
State here last Friday. Marilyn Padg- 
ett, Janet Talley, and Connie Pickrell 
were the only singles winners. This 
meant that only one of the doubles 
team needed to win, in order to win 
the match, but both went down. The 
No. 1 team lost 6-2, 6-2. Jeannie But- 
ler, did not play because of a golf 
meet; it could have had a dif- 
ferent effect on the outcome if she 
had played. This was the last match 
for the girls this season, and next 
year's team should be composed of 
mostly the same girls.

Heart O' Bossier Shopping Center 



In intramural action last week, 
Slicks eked by the TKE's, the DA's 
held off a last-minute effort by Cossa's 
Robbers, the KA's suffered their first 
loss, as the Rotary team was victorious, 
and the Freshmen had to forfeit to 
the Sigs because they did not have 
enough men. This puts things in a 
real mess, as four teams in one league 
are tied for first place. The top four 
teams from each league will play in 
the playoffs if the rest of the games 
are not rained out. Intramural tennis 
is to continue and Coach Harless has 
indicated that matches must be played 
by the time of deadline indicated. 


Janet Talley and Sally Raggio lost 
the first set to Marilyn Padgett and 
Jeanie Butler 10-8 in the finals of 
intramural doubles. 

In the only Softball action this 
week, the Chi O's stomped Walton's 
Wonders 21 to 4. 

The Independents have captured 
first place in the softball rounds; Chi 
Omega is second, and Pickett's Girls 
are the third place winners. 

The Intramural trophy for the out- 
standing team and the most valuable 
player trophy will be presented to the 
winners in honors chapel.

The Real Nitty-Gritty 

Collegiate publications are often dubbed with the explosive 
term "radical." Readers, however, should not be discouraged by 
the word, because it has acquired unnecessarily negative connota- 
tions in our nation. Actually radicalism means simply "relating to or 
proceeding from a root," or "relating to the origin." As stated at 
the beginning of the semester, the Conglomerate has attempted 
to fulfill a dual purpose: to inform and to involve. Thus, with the 
above definitions and purpose in mind: 

Getting to the root of the scademic problem does not 
mean merely making surface attempts to impress pros- 
pective or employed faculty members. It might mean 
bending administration's budget imperatives so that re- 
spected educators will want to come or stay. It definitely 
means budgeting so that faculty salaries and classroom 
and library facilities are considered first. 

Getting to the root of the cafeteria problem does not 
mean juggling jellos and meats, and, unfortunately, it 
has not entirely meant dropping Sunday night meals. 
Getting to the root of the A.VV.S. problem does not mean 
calling for a few more Sunday afternoon open houses or 
developing a more accurate "major-minor" system. It 
means striving to attain the rights to which 18, 19, and 
20-year-old women are entitled. 

Getting to the roots of the publication problem certainly 
does not mean taking for granted the publications that we 
have. Unfortunately, it has not meant handing out 
scholarships to a few people to do the work. It might 
mean setting some type of journalism class — but, no, we 
need a whole new attitude. 

As long as: 

The library stays open no later than ten o'clock, 
We find food or food service unsatisfactory in some way, 
20-year-old women may be campused on Friday nite for 
in accumul penalties such as talking on the pay 

phone after LI o*( lock, 

Publications stiffs arc selected from a handful lof applicants— 
\s long .is the above ai tic of Centenary, we shall call 

radical changes - remembering that our purpose is 
not onl\ Id inform, bul to involve. 

And we know tl. t. we will get honorable compromises.

Thomas' "Under Milkwood" Rates 
As A Pleasurable Experience 


To begin at the beginning: the Coreys' production of Dylan Thomas' voice-play Under Milk- 
wood is well worth the money and time involved in going to see it. The total effect of the production 
is extremely pleasing, and Thomas's frequently bawdy, nearly always irreverent play is not over- 
aestheticized into dullness. The set, which I had feared was too elaborate, provided only a couple of 
problems (the light-poles blocked a clear view of some speakers at times, especially from the side 
sections of the theater), the acting was of a generally competent level, and the problem of character 
multiplicity was handled quite well. Lighting and sound were also good, especially the fade-in and 
fade-out of day; the lone exception was the difficulty one spotlight had in keeping up with the 

Mr. Corey's cutting of the original 
script is judicious and reasonably rev- 
erent. I personally missed such things 
as: the script's original introduction 
to Bessie Bighead, who dreams of 
long-dead Gomer Owen who "kissed 
her once by the pig-sty when she 
wasn't looking, and never kissed her 
again although she was looking all 
the time," and the additional use 
Thomas made of Nogood Boyo, such 
as the fishing escapade in which 
Boyo catches a wet girdle and mur- 
murs, "Bloody funny fish," or the 
little girl's fine one-line characteriza- 
tion of him, "Nogood Boyo gave me 
a penny, but I wouldn't." As to the 
hinted romance between Lily Smalls 
and Boyo, I find no support in Thom- 
as' script, and I feel that it weakens 
both characterizations. Still, in the 
interest of tautness, and with one eye 
on the bodies available to fill roles, 
Mr. Corey has done a professional job 
of cutting (alas for the Puristsl). 

More serious, however, is the mus- 
ical situation. Caedmon records, 
which recorded the first production of 
Under Milkwood (with Thomas read- 
ing as the Narrator), caught Nancy 
Wickwire's improvisation fo/r Polly 
Garter's gentle song; it is a gentle 
folk-air, reminiscent of "Greensleeves,"

and would have been much more 
appropriate for the beatific Polly than 
the atonal ditty sung by Paula Stahls 
(who did a good job otherwise as 
Polly). The original tune was softer, 
gentler, and had a wider emotional 
range. At one point in Thomas' 
script, too, there is a bawdy counter- 
point between the childrens' song 
and Polly's. The children sing and 
fade out, Polly comes in with "Tom, 
Dick, and Harry were three fine men, 
and I'll never have such. . ." the 
children chime, "Ding-a-ding. . ." and 
she concludes ". . .again." It is very 
bawdy, but pointedly characteristic of 
wistful, earth mother Polly. As for 
Mr. Waldo's song, it seems irrelevant, 
and breaks the continuity of Gene 
Hay's strong performance as Waldo. 

In this production, character and 
set are connected so closely that one 
must criticize the actors in a set con- 
text. For the most part the actors 
who are confined to a small area of 
the stage are less successful than 
those given a reasonable amount of 
motion. Jack Black is successful only 
on his exit, and then it partly due to 
the Narrator's cue. Miss Price is too 
circumscribed for even her character. 
Jim Montgomery does better as Mog 
Edwards, and is an earnest (if too 
spry) Reverend Eli Jenkins. Don Mc- 
Clintock does as well as he can as 
Narrator without a very resonant, 
organ-note voice, but I wish he would 
stand still more; his better perform- 
ance is as Cherry Owen. As I men- 
tioned, Gene Hay is fine as Mr. 
Waldo, but his Butcher Bynon is not 
good-why the Charlie Chaplin shuf- 
fle? Ken Holamon's frenetic Lord Cut 
Glass is okay, too, but his other roles 
are not well planned. Carol Thomas

makes a convincing gypsy, a flouncy 
but occasionally inaudible seventeen- 
year-old, a marvelously crabby Mrs. 
Pugh, and a loud ghost. Barbara Mc- 
Millian shows wide range and is 
consistently strong. And if Hal Proske 
leams his cues, he will be a good, 
resonant Capain Cat (even now it is 
the best performance I have seen him 
give). As for the rest, they are there, 
with funny walking styles, occasional 
aimless stage crossings, good sneaky 
entrances into their shanties, and a 
few Dixie accents. 

Under Milkwood was originally 
not a stage action play. Visible motion 
had to be added to the current pro- 
duction, and most of it is alright. In 
the early morning sequence, how- 
ever, there is just too much motion, 
and there is a mighty five o'clock 
rush. Much of this could be eliminat- 
ed by allowing the pace of the play 
to slacken a bit. An hour and thirty- 
five minutes is not too long, nor 
would ten or fifteen additional min- 
utes make it drag. 

My own reaction to the version of 
Under Milkwood presented by the 
Jongleurs is pleasure. It is not the 
same play Thomas wrote it to be, 
but taken for itself it is an enjoyable 
one. One thing that will relieve view- 
ers is prior knowledge that it is okay, 
even proper, to laugh, for Under Milk- 
wood is a very funny place to be. 

A scene from the Majorie Lyons Playhouse current production, 
UNDER MILKWOOD, shows Hal Proske in his roll as Captain Cat.

Gents Close Out Year, 
Anticipate *68 Season 

The Centenary baseballers closed out their 1967 campaign 
with three consecutive washouts last week. Rut in spite of the 
weather, the Gents rolled to an overall record of 12-9, turning 
what was supposed to be a rebuilding year into a most satisfying 
one for players and coaches. Ry winning 9 of their last 12 ball 
games, including double-header sweeps of Louisiana Tech, South- 
ern State, and Ouachita Raptist, the Gents showed they had be- 
come a ball club. 

Bob Lange provided the clutch, 
hitting punch for the Gents while 
batting .435, although his total at bats 
did not qualify him for the batting 
crown. The title went to Panola Jun- 
ior College transfer Robert McDonald, 
who hit .333. Other stellar perform- 
ances by Ronnie Warren, .329, and 
Charlie Grigsy, .322, provided the 
Gents with balanced hitting. 

The pitching question was erased 
by the closing mound talents of Fresh- 
man Mike Reeves (4-1), Charlie Grigs- 
by (2-0), Ed Schiro (2-1), and James 
Gillespie (4-3) who won his last four 

The sudden mid-season improve- 
ment, and the loss of only two seniors 

from this year's squad, add up to a 
highly expectant 1968 baseball season 
for Centenary College.

Gymnists Lose 
National To SIU 

Centenary's women gymnists made their second strong bid 
for national honors this year, only to fall victim to Southern Illinois' 
girls at the National AAU Championships held May 5 and 6 at 
Northwestern at Natchitoches. 

Pictured above is Gary Sutton, 
member of Centenary's tennis 
team. (Photo by Causey) 

Performing somewhat below par, 
the ladies, who lost to the SIU in 
the NCAA Championships by only 
2 points, kept the competition close 
before bowing out 29.5 to 14.0. 

The top 20 all-round performers 
in the women's division automatically 
gain berths on the United States 
team for the Pan-American Games to 

be held in Winnipeg, Canada in July. 
Centenary's AU-Americans Janie 
Speaks, 8th in all-round, Karen Live- 
ly, 11th in all-round, and Marianne 
Woolner, 18th in all-round, will com- 
pete on the U.S. team. Ail-American 
Susan McDonald, also in the top 20, 
will compete for her native Canada. 

Every year 

we fail to educate 

thousands of potentially 

successful citizens 

because theyte 
mentally retarded. 

And we're supposed 
to be so smart. 

Is it smart to spend $150,000 to keep a mentally 
retarded person in an institution for a lifetime, 
when he could be earning his own living? 

Is it smart or even fair to deny an adequate 
education and job opportunity to a citizen of your 
community simply because he's retarded? 

Even now it happens far too often. 

Yet, the fact is that 85 percent of the retarded 
are capable of supporting themselves if they are 
trained. Indeed, they do many routine jobs better 
than average or "normal" people. 

Does your community have special programs for 
education, recreation and vocational training of 
the retarded? If it doesn't, it's time it did. And you 
could be the person to get the ball rolling. 

To learn what you can do, send for a free book- 
let. Address: ThePresident'sCommittee on Mental 
Retardation, Washington, D.C. 20201 .
